We are pleased that after four long months we are in a position to allow some of our regular hirers back into our hall again, albeit with a reduced but safe capacity.
Since we had to close, we have remained active. We bought forward replacing the hall floor after successfully receiving a 50% grant from the National Lottery Community fund. Many thanks to Athena Flooring for carrying out a great job at such short notice.
We have also through the hard work of our volunteering committee carried out the required risk assessments so we could safely reopen the playground, outdoor fitness equipment and now the main hall following relevant guidelines. We have implemented many new processes including for one-way systems, hand sanitisers, special cleaning regimes and even marks on our hall floor (Using special tape so not to mark it) so people can attend and still socially distance.
Good luck to Line Dancing who are our first regular hirer back and we look forward over the next month or two in welcoming most of our regular hirers back at the appropriate time.
