Coronavirus and the continued closure of the Village Hall
The government has published a roadmap showing the timetable and requirements to facilitate the easing of restrictions and lockdown. It will be a staged approach which is data driven - not simply based on dates!
The Village Hall Committee at its meeting on 8 April decided that the Village Hall would reopen to existing hirers (those that were hiring sessions prior to the pandemic) from Monday 17 May. New bookings for events such as parties will not be possible until 21 June.
The Village Hall’s Annual General Meeting will be held via Zoom at 7pm on Wednesday 12 May. The meeting is open to members of the public to attend. Please contact the chairman, Andrew Eckersley at email@example.com to be sent an invitation to join the Zoom meeting.
An ordinary meeting of the Village Hall Committee will follow the AGM.
Covid Risk Assessment
An extensive Risk Assessment has been prepared to ensure that the village hall can be used safely. Users are expected to follow the necessary precautions that are included in the Booking Form and displayed within the hall. The Risk Assessment and guidelines associated with the safe running of the village hall will be regularly reviewed as rules change and hall users come on board. The hall users themselves will need to prepare their own Risk Assessment.
At the committee meeting on 25 August it was agreed that the following private hires/events which were postponed due to the pandemic will be rescheduled as soon as possible once the pandemic is over or the committee believes it is safe to stage them.
