The Village Hall committee has been discussing for some time when and how we can reopen the hall, and a great deal of preparation has been done to that end. However, with cases of Covid-19 rising again, the committee has decided that the hall will stay closed for the time being.
This decision will be reviewed regularly, and we will continue to monitor the regulations and advice from the Welsh Government and Monmouthshire County Council. (The Council staff have been particularly helpful in answering our queries.)
In making this decision we have taken into account the responses to our questionnaire. These have shown that opinion is clearly divided in the village about whether we should reopen soon, and the concern expressed by some people was one of the factors in our decision. We welcome your continued input – please fill in the questionnaire if you have not already done so.
We have also looked at the layout of the hall and the viability of any events we could hold, as well as the amount of work that would be required by our volunteers to maintain high safety standards. This research will all be useful for the time when we are able to resume activities.
While the hall is closed, we are considering other ways we could interact as a village community. For example, we plan to run the hall’s Christmas Card distribution this year (but with more safety measures in place).
We will keep you informed, mainly through this web site and the village email list. If you do not receive our emails, you can request to be added to the circulation using our Contact form.
Thank you, everyone, for your continued patience and support.
