During the Covid pandemic for the last 18 months the committee:

  • Closed the hall due to Covid 19 restrictions in March 2020.
  • Briefly opened for a few occasions with Covid-secure measures in place in Summer 2020 and closed again in November 2020.
  • Opened the hall in May 2021 for Local and PCC elections.
  • Reopened, as restrictions gradually lifted – Life Art restarted in May and Yoga restarted in July.
  • Applied for and received a government grant to cover on-going running costs during the Covid crisis when we had no income.
  • Arranged for works to be undertaken on the stage and flooring to the right hand side of the stage.  These improvements will improve the stage area for drama performances

BBQ Pictures

The recent BBQ was a great  evening enjoyed by lots of people as well as raising funds for the hall.

Vaughan, our Chairman would like to say a big thank you to all committee member for their hard work and commitment.  We are fortunate to have so many villagers who are able to help out setting up, on the evening, and clearing up on the Sunday morning.  The BBQ would not happen without them and we would like to pass on our thanks to everyone who helped.
