Winchelsea New Hall is still open for groups of up to 30
Despite the changing rules and often confusing messages from central government the New Hall management committee have been keeping a close eye on the COVID regulations and the recent updates.
Although the new “Rule of Six” means we cannot socialise with more than this number, groups such as clubs and societies can currently hold meetings or events in places deemed “COVID-19 secure” with as many people as can safely be accommodated, allowing for social distancing and other hygiene measures.
The committee has carried out a Risk Assessment; there are distance markings externally, a one-way system in and out, and hand sanitiser and cleaning supplies are provided. The hall is therefore COVID-19 compliant and legally able to accept bookings.
Hirers do have to disinfect before and after hire but this is usually quite quick using the materials provided and not too onerous!
We have set the maximum number at 30 people for most activities to ensure social distancing although larger groups could be accommodated if seating is appropriately spaced and forward facing, and face coverings are used.
We have been pleased to welcome a number of activities this month including dance lessons, badminton, table-tennis and reading group.
