Lurgashall Arts & Crafts Exhibtion, 26-27 February 2022

Every three years for the last 20 or so, Lurgashall Village Hall hosts a very special Arts & Crafts Exhibition which shows some of the incredible artistic and craft talent of local people in our parish.

It is hard to describe the amazing variety and quality of works that are shown, and this year will be no exception.  Postponed from 2021 because of the coronavirus lockdown, applications for submitting works are now being accepted.  Entry forms are available in the village shop or from 8artscrafts@gmail.com.  Cut-off date for entries is 8 February.

The exhbition will be open for everyone to view on Sat 26th and Sun 27th February, 11am – 4pm, at Lurgashall Village Hall.  Admission is free. 

A Carpenters’ Tribute – Sat. 22 January at Lurgashall Village Hall

We are delighted to welcome the very talented singer, Karen Barnett, to entertain the village with her brilliant tribute act of Carpenters’ songs.

Karen’s silky smooth tones are often likened to such great singers as Karen Carpenter, so she is the perfect person to give life to some of the Carpenters’ amazing songs.

Doors open at 7.30pm for an 8pm start.

Tickets £7.50 from the village shop or call 01428 707596.

Village Tea – Wed 26 January, 3-5pm

Afternoon Teas are back for 2022!

Our monthly Afternoon Teas are a lovely, informal way of meeting people in the community.

Please note, because of the set-up for the Arts & Crafts exhibition, there will be no Afternoon Tea in February, but we will be back again on Wednesday 30th March.

SOME EXCITING AND IMPORTANT DEVELOPMENTS

The Hall has now re-opened for business, and we will soon be announcing a programme of events which we hope many of you will want to join in with: indeed we look forward to more people wanting to use the Hall now that it has been refurbished.

In light of receiving a government grant to help organisations like ours to re-start, we have made the decision that the best way of doing this is to help our users themselves get going, and so we will waive all hire charges for Lurgashall organisations and residents until January 2022.

However, Covid has not gone away, so we will be asking our users to follow some simple guidelines in order to keep them and our Hall covid-safe:

From 19 July 2021….

  1. Please do NOT enter the Hall if you or anyone in your household has COVID-19 symptoms.
  2. If you develop COVID-19 symptoms within 7 days of visiting the Hall, please alert Test & Trace and notify the organiser of the activity you attended.
  3. For Test & Trace, there are QR posters just inside the main and side entrances.
  4. Hand sanitisers are provided in the Hall, if you wish to use them. Soap and hand driers are in the toilets.
  5. There are cleaning stations for wiping down furniture, equipment, etc. in the main Hall and in the kitchen, if required.
  6. Use of face coverings remains advisable, especially in confined spaces such as corridors, kitchen and toilet areas.
  7. Please keep the Hall well ventilated, to reduce the risk of virus transmission. Please close doors and windows on leaving.

If you have any queries or would like to hire the Hall, please contact the Booking Secretary on admin@lurgashallvillagehall.org    07796-162304

Onwards!

The 2021 Village Hall ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING will take place via Zoom on Tuesday 6 July at 7pm.

To take part in the meeting:

  • email admin@lurgashallvillagehall.org as soon as you can prior the date and time of the meeting.
  • Copies of all the relevant papers will then be sent to you.
  • Finally, you will receive an email ‘invitation’ which will enable you to join the meeting.

The AGM is an important public opportunity to look back on this difficult year for the Village Hall year and to present the independently examined financial statements.

The year under review did enable us to have the hall beautifully re-decorated inside and out, so it is now refreshed and ready for finally re-opening in July, subject to government decisions.
