Beautiful things happen in our hall.

We have welcomed back Yogabellies this week, a Mother, Toddler and Baby Yoga group.  As Webmaster I snuck in at the end to have a little nose at what was going on. What a beautiful atmosphere Sam had provided for the new mums. I kinda wanted to be in their sparkly circle too.

We’re open and rocked it with style!

We opened our doors to regular hirers on 17th August in line with government guidelines.

A big thank you to Rose and Mrs Dickie Bows for being the first to try out the new Covid restrictions with her Retro Dance class.  It was well organised and as safe can be. All couples had their own taped off area to dance in and Rose directed from the stage. ‘It was a different way of teaching’ Rose said ‘but I’ll get used to it! It was lovely being in the hall and dancing again’

Hirers And Trustees of the hall have supported each other in ideas on how to get the much loved classes up and running again.  The community spirit has come alive in these different times.  

Government Advice

The government has amended their advice regarding the use of face masks for people in village halls and community centres as follows:-

‘This amendment came into force on 8th August in The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Wearing of Face Coverings in a Relevant Place)(England)(Amendment) Regulations 2020.

People taking part in exercise or sport which would also take place in ‘Indoor fitness studios, gyms, dance studios, leisure centres, indoor swimming pools, water parks, funfairs, theme parks or other premises for indoor sports, leisure or adventure activities’, do NOT now have to wear face masks to participate in these activities.‘’
