Special arrangements for hall use
Keeping our hall users and community safe is our primary concern. We are following the latest government guidelines and will update requirements in line with changes. Guidance, recommendations and additional booking terms and conditions are all detailed in the section below.
The Village Hall Committee have completed their own risk assessment for reopening the hall. Please contact the committee if you require a copy.
FACE COVERINGS / MASKS
Community centres, including village halls are included in the list of indoor places where you must wear a face covering.
You do not have to wear face coverings when consuming food or drinks in the village hall, or if you're taking part in exercise. Nevertheless for normal activities like attending a meeting or watching a film in the hall, face coverings are currently mandatory.
Please note, children under age eleven do not have to wear face coverings and there a number of specific circumstances where people are also exempt. Please refer to the government guidance for further details:
SPECIAL CONDITIONS OF HIRE
When hiring the hall, please refer to these hiring conditions. These conditions are supplemental to, not a replacement for, the hall’s ordinary conditions of hire.
SPECIAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Additional responsibilities for the hall hirer during Covid-19 restrictions are listed in Special Terms and Conditions. These are supplementary to the standard hall hiring terms and conditions.
HIRER'S RISK ASSESSMENT
Please use the Hirer's risk assessment template to consider how your group will safely use the hall.
Please share this information about Participant Behaviour with all attendees prior to your activity. The guidance will make sure everyone has clear expectations about how to use the hall.
ENTERING AND EXITING
This document covers the 'Get in' procedure and the 'Get out' procedure. These are the actions that the hirer or their designated person must follow when setting up an activity and then closing up the hall.
At the start of your event, read the user announcement to all attendees to remind them of the special measures in place.
MANAGING SUSPECTED COVID-19 ON SITE
If an attendee develops suspected Covid-19 symptoms, please follow the step-by-step guidance in the treatment plan.
A laminated copy of this poster is displayed within the hall. The laminated version has a space for the last person who cleaned the hall to sign and date. Please print off extra copies if required.
