Village Hall Update

Update: Closure of Crowhurst Village Hall

Unfortunately, due to the impact of the coronavirus the Village Hall was closed except for exclusive use by the School. The situation has been kept under review by the Crowhurst Village Hall Management Committee (CVHMC) in relation to guidance issued by the Government. Although the guidance now allows halls such as ours to open for up to 30 people from two households there are other constraints such as social distancing, cleaning before and after each hire and difficulties with meeting requirements due to the layout of the hall. In view of these constraints the hall will remain closed until September at the earliest when we will review the situation. Should the guidance be relaxed earlier than this then the CVHMC will of course review the situation.

In the meantime, we are taking practical steps such as installing sanitiser and deep cleaning including items such as the curtains. We will also be contacting regular hirers with a short survey to help plan reopening more effectively. We also need to identify who holds keys to the hall as part of our preparation to reopen and co-operation with this would be appreciated.
