Covid-19: update 8 October 2021 - winter plan

It is still possible to catch and spread COVID-19, even if you are fully vaccinated.

The hall is now operating at its normal capacity limits.  The onus is on hirers to use their own judgement and  bear in mind more vulnerable members of their groups when planning numbers.

Windows MUST be kept open when the hall is in use as good ventilation is essential for reducing transmission of Covid-19 and other viruses.  Please don't forget to shut them when you leave.

The Government advises that you should wear face coverings in crowded and enclosed areas where you come into contact with people you do not usually meet.

Please do not enter the hall if you have Covid or flu-like symptoms or have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid in the previous seven days.  If you have symptoms you should self-isolate immediately and get a PCR test even if you’ve had one or more doses of a COVID-19 vaccine.

Hand sanitiser is available in the hall and the NHS QR code is displayed for you to use.

The deposit may be waived for regular bookings and village organisations. This and the balance of the hire fee must be paid two weeks before the booking date.

The Village Hall Committee holds licences for entertainment and the sale of alcohol at the hall. Obviously there are terms and conditions to ensure that events do not cause disturbance. If you are planning an event which needs the licences please speak with Jacqui when you talk to her about booking the hall. There is more about this in the conditions of hire.
