Covid 19 Update - Arkholme Village Hall

 

We are planning on reopening Arkholme Village Hall on 01 September 2020.

 

The below guidance is in compliance with current government guidance but is subject to change.  

 

Update: Face Coverings

 

From 24th July face coverings are required in shops, so this includes in village halls when opening.

 

Changes to AVH: What you can expect.

 

We have been working hard to adjust things at the Hall to keep all our visitors and volunteers safe.

 

• The Main Hall will be limited to 22 occupants (subject to variation due to type of event) and it will be the responsibility of the hirer to ensure any events or activities are carried out in accordance with applicable social distancing guidelines.

 

• You will enter and exit the hall through the main door, which will only be available for Hall hirers at their allotted booking time.

 

• Hand sanitising facilities will be available throughout the hall.

 

•There will be limited numbers allowed in each area, and once these numbers are reached, we will be unable admit anyone else.

 

• We have limited occupancy for other areas of the hall, as follows:

 

  Foyer - 12 people

 

  Committee Room - 8 people

 

  Kitchen - 2 people

 

 

The Post Office which has been running throughout lockdown will keep its usual hours. Please ensure you wear a face covering.

 

Customers will to be asked to queue in the foyer, socially distanced at 2 meters.

 

Group meetings and regular sports classes.

 

Please contact your organiser for yoga, pilates, badminton, lunch club, toddler group etc. The organisers of these events will be able to let you know when classes will restart. Some activities may have a start date later this year.

Weddings 

 

Due to the changes to the Government guidelines small wedding receptions will not now be able to take place - we will update as oon as we have updated guidence.

 

 

 

There are lots of measures that need to be put in place to adhere to the Covid 19 restrictions that we will have in place:

 

· Minimise contact with individuals who are unwell: Nobody should attend the premises if they have symptoms or are self-isolating due to symptoms in their household.

 

· Clean your hands often: Sanitiser or soap and water should be provided at entry and exit points, sanitiser and/or running water, soap and paper towels in toilets and kitchens.

 

· Respiratory hygiene: Everyone needs to be encouraged to avoid touching their mouth, eyes, and nose. Tissues need to be disposed of into a bin, then hands cleaned. A “Catch it, Bin it, Kill it” poster has been put up.

 

· Regular cleaning of surfaces that are touched frequently: including door handles, handrails, table tops, sinks, toilet areas, kitchen surfaces.

 

· Maintain social distancing where possible: Social distancing guidelines currently require at least 2 metres (3 steps) to be maintained between individuals and groups of up to 2 households where possible and, where not possible, 1 metre plus other mitigation measures. Bookings can be accepted for events where social distancing can be maintained and contacts below 2m are minimised and transitory.

 

· At an event, individual household groups are advised not to interact with anyone outside the group they attend with, i.e. in a group no larger than 2 households. For example, if a family quiz is held, people from a group of 2 households may sit at the same table; those from different household groups would need to be seated at tables a minimum of 2m apart, with a total number of 22 people allowed in our main hall.

 

As you will be aware, these changes may be with us for some time and we therefore ask you to bear with us during this challenging period of adjustment.

We will be updating this information on a regulally basis as things change so please look out for information on our social pages and the website
