WE’RE GETTING THERE
From 19th July rules for the Village Hall have been relaxed but we have decided to maintain certain restrictions for the time being.
The front door will remain locked to control who enters the building. Access will be by buzzing the room in which a particular activity is taking place or by buzzing the office which will be open from 9.30am to 12.30pm Monday to Friday.
Masks will be required when entering the building and in common parts. They will not be required in individual rooms as these and social distancing protocols will be at the discretion of individual hirers.
The present one-way system will be maintained.
Access will be available to the stage but not under the stage.
Wall fans will be available for use in the main hall.
Upholstered chairs will be available only for parties and, if used, must be sprayed and quarantined. Other groups will be restricted to plastic chairs.
With the exception of party bookings only the disabled toilet will be available.
If regular hirers wish to retain their slot they need to notify our administrator by the end of August.
The above restrictions will be reviewed regularly.
