Living with Covid – Important

Village Hall Chair Barbara Brewer writes:

We are very happy that groups and activities are returning to the hall, after the problems of the last two years.  However, it is important that everyone realises that although Covid restrictions have been lifted, the government information that Village Halls are required to adhere to has changed very little.

Every group and activity will have different requirements and a different approach, but the basic principles still remain for the safety and well-being of everyone.

DEFRA/ACRE/CFO has advised us to ask users to follow the principles below –

  1. People should stay at home if unwell. Those who have tested positive for Covid should inform the leader of their hall activity and close contacts.* (See below.) They should not attend the hall until they have two negative lateral flow tests on days 5 and 6.
  2. Indoor meetings should still be well ventilated.
  3. A face covering should still be worn in crowded and enclosed spaces.
  4. Hands should be cleaned frequently.
  5. Social distancing should be maintained as far as possible.
  6. If a more crowded event is to take place – receptions etc. – hirers should be encouraged to ask everyone to take a lateral flow test beforehand.

*The NHS app is still in use and you can report a positive test to them, but the NHS QR contact poster is no longer in use.

If you have any questions, please contact Barbara Brewer on 01869 340423 , or Margaret Bulleyment on 01869 347346.

The Village Hall

The Village Hall

The Village Hall is an old Victorian building full of charm and character which was fully refurbished in 1999/2000. It is near the village sports field, the church, and a fantastic play-space where children of all ages can play in a stimulating and safe environment. There is sufficient off-road car parking for up to 80 vehicles.

The building has a large hall licensed for up to 140 people, a smaller meeting room that can double as a quiet room or dressing room, a well equipped kitchen, toilets and full disabled facilities and access.

It is used for a wide variety of activities, including theatrical and musical entertainment, dance tuition, badminton and other indoors sports, and as a meeting place for many clubs and societies. It is also the ideal venue for private parties, wedding receptions, seminars etc. with a public address system and loop for the hard of hearing.
