It is also intended to hold the first Village Hall Coffee Morning since the Covid Crisis began. Scheduled for 10.30am on Saturday 7th August, we look forward to seeing you all there, especially all the newcomers to the Village. Book swap will be available as usual.
No prior booking is needed for the Pub Night, or the Coffee Morning.
Sunday Roast Lunch
We have now be able to book a new date for the Sunday Roast Lunch in the Hall. It is Sunday 31st October, which is the first free date without existing commitments for the Hall, or the Caterers.
Reservations will be required for the Sunday Lunch, so if you are interested please get in touch as we expect demand to be high. No payment or menu choices are required at the moment.
Village Hall Improvements
We appreciate that many people may still be reluctant to attend potentially crowded venues, so the Village Hall has completed a major expansion and enhancement to its outside facilities, which will provide an extra area (covered if required) for relaxing and dining.
With the latest announcement from the Government regarding the relaxation of the Covid rules, it seems very likely that the Pub Night, previously scheduled for the 26th June, can now be held on Saturday 7th August. With the extended and enhanced outside area there will be plenty of room for people to socialise either inside the Hall or in the beer garden the the rear of the Hall. If the weather is not particularly good we can house a number in the the new super-sized gazebo we have purchased for the purpose.
St James Church is also planning an
Anniversary Weekend's Celebrations
on 24/25th July
At the same time a number of User Groups are returning to their regular slots at the Hall. Your group leader will be able to tell you when your particular group is starting their activities again.
I'm sure people will be looking forward to returning to the Hall for these events, as I know that everyone is eager to get back to an active, safe, social life as soon as possible.
