COVID-19 spreads by :-

Close contact – so social distancing

Coughs & sneezes, especially indoors – so face masks

Touch transmission from hand to hard surfaces – so hand & surface sanitisers

And everybody has a responsibility to reduce the spread

Trustees have decided to open the community hall for community use, but, as may be expected, there are terms and conditions! Apologies for that, but it is for the protection of the whole community.


The hall will provide hands free hand sanitiser and spray sanitiser. We will also ensure toilets are cleaned on a regular basis (depending on use), but we cannot provide a cleaner after every group has vacated the building.


We do not anticipate much initial use, and not large numbers. This makes life easier!


The only room available will be the main hall, and there will be no kitchen facilities [if something else is needed, contact us]. Tables are already erected and put up, as are chairs around the hall. We expect to be able to advise groups which are “their” chairs. Please feel free to bring own drinks etc, but clear up after use.


ALL users are requested to bring their own personal sanitiser to use on a regular basis. They are also expected to act responsibly with COVID-19 in mind.

We need to state the obvious - if you are feeling unwell, or there is any possibility that you have been in contact with somebody with Covid -19 symptoms, then DO NOT come to the hall.


The person hiring the hall should book in the normal way BOOKING FORM.

That person will be responsible for making decisions on compulsory face masks and the social distancing relevant to their group. They also need to ensure and enforce everyone regularly sanitises, especially before and after exiting the toilets, which ideally should be controlled to one person at a time.

The hirer will also be responsible for returning chairs/tables after use, and spray sanitising any surfaces that will have been touched, including doors and in the toilets.

If music is played, it must not require raised voices for conversation.

A list and contact details of all attendees must be kept for 21 days.

We will also require an e mail from the hirer confirming that they will comply with these conditions, and this is below.


These rules may change on a regular basis, and fundamentally in September. The current situation will be as the COVID tab on

I am sending this form to confirm that our group will comply with the conditions as above.
