The Village Hall has reopened, following Covid-19 Restriction being lifted, and many of our regular hirers have resumed their activities.
The Village Hall trustees take the safety of all users very seriously and have adopted best practice to protect everyone that uses our facilities.
If you hire or attend an event/activity at the Village Hall, we strongly request that you adopt the advice that we have received, see below.
Even though the capacity for using the Hall has been lifted, please continue to Covid-risk assess your activity/event, it may be that a responsible cap’ should be adopted for the event/activity that is taking place. Please encourage people who are attending your event/activity to:
- not enter the Village Hall if they have or display Covid-19 symptoms or when they should be isolating,
- wear face coverings,
- use the hand sanitiser,
- “check in” with NHS Test and Trace Update (or use a register),
- ventilate the building,
- wipe down touched surfaces,
Should someone become infected with Covid-19 by attending an event/activity at Hall where the event/activity organisers have not taken reasonable steps to control the spread of a communicable infection, it is possible that the event/activity organiser could be held liable.
The trustees will continue to review our protocols and, should it be required, are not afraid to impose local restrictions for using the Village Hall. We call on all Hall users to do their part for keeping our Hall safe for all the people that use it.
