Village Hall Closure

The policy the Trustees have adopted to date is that the village hall will remain open for the foreseeable future, with individual clubs making their own decisions as to whether to continue or not.

The announcement made last night and the gov.uk guidance notes make it very clear that ‘Community Centres must remain closed, with the exception that they may remain open for the purpose of hosting essential voluntary or public services, such as food banks or homeless services’.

Consequently we are left with no alternative other than to close the hall as of the end of Tuesday 24th March 2020, for the time being.

The Government also state that they will ‘look at these measures in three weeks and relax them if evidence shows this is possible’.
