Village Hall re-opening

It gives us great pleasure to announce that after being closed for 166 days due to the pandemic, we re-opened for our regular users on 1st September 2020.

We have strictly followed Government Guidance to make the Hall "Covid Secure". Changes have been made and signs remind users of the new rules.

On arrival the front doors will be open, hand sanitiser provided and a face covering mandatory. You must keep 2 metres apart from others in your session. There are markers on the walls around the rooms to help and the capacity of each room has been reduced. The Main Hall is limited to 27 people, the Billiard Room to 10 and the Kitchen to 3. Windows should be opened to ensure adequate ventilation. More »

All frequently touched surfaces will be wiped and used chairs replaced between sessions, ensuring that your room is always clean. Surface sanitisers are available if required during a session, and additional waste bins are in use to help the "Catch it, Bin it, Kill it" campaign.

All our toilets have antibacterial wipes provided. The Ladies and Gents have their outer door fixed open so you can see if they are free before going in. The disabled toilet now includes a safe waiting area if someone is taken ill with symptoms.

At present, only the kettle is available in the Kitchen. Users are welcome to bring their own refreshments.

These changes are designed to give reassurance and build confidence among our users at this difficult time, especially those over 70. We recognise that ultimately, people will only want to return when it feels right for them. That is absolutely fine – no individual or group should feel under pressure to return.

Further information is available on our document entitled "Help keep this Hall Covid-19 secure" or via email at chrisbrowny55@hotmail.co.uk

We look forward to seeing you all soon. » Less

Covid 19 in Northamptonshire survey

Northamptonshire County Council (NCC), and all our partners who are working together on the coronavirus pandemic, want to hear from members of our communities.

We want to gather feedback to understand your views on the spread of coronavirus in the county and to identify what might be helping or stopping people from following guidance.

We will ask you about getting tested, about social distancing (keeping 2 metres apart) and self-isolation (staying at home if you have symptoms or a positive test) so that we can identify ways of making all of these things easier for our residents. More »

Please note that your answers to this survey are anonymous and the results of all responses will be analysed by NCC public health and engagement teams with the overall findings being shared with our incident response team and Oversight and Engagement Board.

Have your say

Please give us your views by completing our online questionnaire.

The consultation closes at midnight on 5 October 2020. » Less
