At this challenging time for the country, your safety is our priority and we’ve worked hard to ensure we’re Covid-19 Secure. We’ve been able to do this with thanks to funding from the Coronavirus Community Support Fund, distributed by The National Lottery Community Fund, with thanks to the Government for making this possible
The Hall is now open again for bookings and events
Stpe 3 of the government’s roadmap out of lockdown has allowed the Hall to re-open for most activities and events. We are following the current legislation which means there will still be regulations to follow for all of our users and volunteers. Thank you for your help in observing these so that we can ensure everyone’s safety and wellbeing.
Becoming Covid-19 Secure
We completed one part of our plan for becoming Covid-19 Secure – a deep clean of the entire Village Hall. This included:
- cleaning of all touchpoints, such as door and cupboard handles
- use of non-allergenic products that provide a short-term barrier against transmission of viruses
- thorough cleaning of all tables and chairs
- deep cleaning of all cupboards and shelves throughout the kitchen and bar area
We were able to undertake this deep clean thanks to funding from the Coronavirus Community Support Fund, distributed by The National Lottery Community Fund, with thanks to the Government for making this possible.
Covid-19 Secure Bookings
Now that the Hall is able to re-open, we require all hirers to help us maintain our Covid-19 Secure status.
There are some changes that you will see and to maintain the Hall’s Covid-19 security not all areas will be available.
The Campbell Room will remain closed for now as a result of its size and the challenge this presents with social distancing. We hope we can re-open it when Step 4 of the roadmap goes live. The kitchen will be available on a case-by-case basis, so please contact us for more information.
You’ll notice some differences
We’ve introduced contactless access on the rear door and the push bar on the internal side uses AntiGerm technology to prevent the spread of bacteria and more.
There’s new signage around the Hall to help us meet the regulations. There are also new sanitiser stations and Covid-19 cleaning boxes for use.
Funding from the Coronavirus Community Support Fund, distributed by The National Lottery Community Fund, has helped us to provide additional equipment and signage.
Safety of the committee
We will be following all relevant guidance to ensure that any of our volunteers working at the Hall in any capacity remain safe.
Depending on the guidance in place at the time, this may include the use of PPE and adherence to social distancing.
Risk Assessment – Dumbleton Village Hall
As part of the Hall’s Covid-19 secure planning, we have undertaken a risk assessment which you can download from here.
Thank you for your understanding
We know this is a challenging time for everyone. We want to make it easy for you to come back to the Hall. The committee is volunteer-run, so we ask for your patience and understanding if we can’t answer any questions you may have immediately.
