As previously reported, 2020 marks the Centenary year following the building of Hartfield Village Hall for all parishioners in 1920. The committee had agreed to join with the 75th anniversary of VE Day celebrations in the village, planning an exhibition in the Hall of memorabilia from the Parish Historical archives. Sadly, due to the devastating effect of Covid 19 virus, this has had to be cancelled, but we hope we can re-schedule later in the year.
The popular monthly lunch club and the “Young at Heart” Wednesday exercise class have also been cancelled for the time being. Contact Linda on 01892 770487 for information.
The hall is a hub for the youth organisations who store most of their equipment there and each group is presently making their own decision on whether to continue meeting.
Whilst the hall is cleaned regularly and thoroughly, it is not possible to disinfect all surfaces every day between users, so hall users themselves need to ensure strict hygiene standards are maintained.
At the time of writing the hall has not actually been closed but the situation is very fluid and it may well have done so by the time you read this.
Some good news amongst the gloom
Work has commenced on improving the path at the side of the hall and we are delighted to announce at at last work is also scheduled to begin later this month on refurbishing the disabled toilet and making it accessible from the inside lobby – it will also house a baby changing unit. Once this work is completed, we will turn our attention to modernising the present ladies’ and gents’ facilities.
