A number of people have asked when the market will re-start given
that, as of mid-June, indoor markets were permitted to re-open.
For the time being the Village Hall remains close and its closure will not be reviewed until September. A decision on re-starting the village market will be made after that. In the meantime, if anyone, or small group, thinks they might be interested in taking over the running of the market, please contact Josephine, on Inkpen 668 068.
The village hall is now open for hire for any activities which
are permissible under the Government’s current restrictions. We
would require any hirers to thoroughly check this for themselves
before contacting the hall.
The village hall has done everything currently required from a venue to re-open as safely as possible and will continue to adjust as regulations change. Any potential hirers would be required to complete our existing hiring agreement alongside a Covid 19 addendum which asks that extra necessary precautions and procedures are taken.
For indoor sports, this would include all recommended steps that their sporting governing body recommends. Pilates with Caroline has re-commenced for its current customers who were keen to get going again and a further class is planned to re-commence in November which can include new customers – further details will follow. Some of you may find a local and smaller venue preferable to larger, busier gyms or clubs for these difficult times.
We also appreciate the need for villagers to still be able to continue with exercise and social contact to some extent so we do hope that the village hall can support this need in a very measured and safe way over the winter months when mental and physical health may start to suffer further. Any questions do get in touch on 0756 828 4750.
Although we are delighted that the Village Hall is now open again, we have made the decision that Stich and Knit will not be meeting for the next few months. This decision will be reviewed in Spring 2021 when hopefully we will be able to meet again. This is by no means the end of Stitch and Knit but just a little break over the winter months based on feedback from some of our regular attendees. Stitch and Knit WILL return but safety and health must be the priority.
Regrettably, we have little to report as, like many of the local
clubs, our meetings have been put on hold. With the easing of
restrictions, we hope to be up and running soon with a few
modifications to our arrangements to minimise any risk from Covid
(well, I'm not so sure about the running but we will try to walk
