We are pleased to say that some activities will slowly be making a return to the Village Hall.

The Childrens Gym class was able to resume last month after the first stage of lockdown was lifted. This activity was allowed under government rules as it is an educational, supervised activity for children.

The Community Library was also allowed to re-open albeit it with one borrower or hub allowed in at any one time. The flow of borrowers is controlled by a volunteer who will be in the Hall foyer, whilst a second Volunteer is help on hand within the Library. Opening hours are Mondays 3-4.p.m, Fridays 2 – 4.p.m and Saturdays 10.a.m – Noon. Any further information on the facility please contact 01609 536547 or admin@gargravelibrary.co.uk

Other small classes and exercise classes are able to return from the 17th May though have to adhere to the conditions of their relevant risk assessments. We look forward to the return of Yoga and Pilates and so too the Art class and the Art group. The Snooker club members will also be able to resume their sport from this date.

The final stage of the end of lockdown will hopefully arrive as scheduled in June. It may then take time to assess any new rules and arrange adaptions to events ensuring compliance is in place for all activities. Therefore we please ask everyone to remain patient. We have a duty of care to the public who use our fantastic facilities and it is our responsibility to ensure that safety is paramount. Therefore we have taken the decision that we cannot take any new bookings which include social mixing of larger groups from August at the earliest.  Any events which are possible will be posted on this website as soon as it is practical to do so. We do hope to arrange an outdoor Coffee morning as soon as we can but this is dependant on the weather conditions.

We continue to sell a few items to raise funds for the Village Hall and thank anyone who has kindly donated goods. Last months Chicco pushchair sold very quickly.

This month we have a folding metal dog cage. Suitable for a small to medium size dog. Priced at £6.00.

Also a Silver Cross all terrain folding pushchair priced at £60.00.  ( Surf model )
