Village Hall report – 20 September 2020

logo with ext and door Jan 2019Events are gradually returning to the Hall although it may be many months before it can be ‘business as usual’.

Monday evening Pilates classes have returned successfully and local organisations are once again holding their meetings in the Hall.

All events operate under the Hall’s Covid-secure guidelines.  Socialising is controlled by adherence to social distancing and the wearing of facemasks, except when exercising, eating or drinking.

The new ‘rule of six’ has caused general public confusion, but for community buildings such as ours, it only limits the number of people attending in a single bubble; it does not affect the total Covid-secure numbers taking part in an event.  These are currently:  18 people seated banquet style; 25 people seated theatre style; 30 people standing.

The Trustees are grateful to those hirers and event organisers who are prepared to work with us to bring activities back into the Village Hall.  These are comments from two recent organisers:

‘…we felt very safe and there was plenty of space for the attendees, with social distancing….’

     ‘…the floor markings worked really well; we were all able to           comfortably fit with the appropriate distance around us…’

More Good News:  The Hall is currently undergoing a makeover.  Thiselton Decorators are busy repairing and re-painting the exterior of the Hall; they will then move inside and complete the programme of full re-decoration.

Macmillan needs our support more than ever so that it can carry on supporting us…

The Village Hall has taken part in Macmillan’s ‘Biggest Coffee Morning’ for many years (usually with tea!).  This year will have to be a bit different whilst Covid-19 rules apply.

New for 2020

Cake & Produce Sale – Friday 25 September – 3 pm–4:30 pm – outside at the front of the Village Hall

Please bake some cakes, share the bounty from your garden or allotment and bring along your marmalade, chutneys and jams.  Then treat yourself to the fruits of someone else’s labours!
