Important Information concerning the re-opening of our Village Hall


As you may know, LMVI has been closed for its usual activities & events since 23rd March, following the country wide imposed lockdown due to COVID 19.

Following the Government’s recent announcements on the further relaxation of the Lockdown Rules you will have heard that a number of venues including village halls, CAN re-open, emphasis on ‘CAN’ rather than ‘MUST’.

We, the Trustees have considered the resulting guidance issued & were represented at a recent meeting organised by ‘ACTion with Communities in Rural England (which links the village hall network) on the very subject of re-opening. This was then discussed by us, at a meeting held on 8th August socially distancing in an outdoor setting & using FaceTime to include a member living outside the village.

Whilst we too, like you,  have missed our regular group activities held at LMVI, all of which bring our community together, YOUR safety & that of OUR VOLUNTEERS (on whom we rely so much) is of the paramount concern to us.

We are therefore working towards a safe re-opening, using the guidelines issued by the Government & subsequent interpretation by ACRE. Risk assessments, cleaning & sanitising regimes are being put into place & we will update this information as & when appropriate.


Thank you for your understanding.


We hope that this update finds you all well and keeping safe.


Mike, Sarah, Jurek, Geoff, Anne, Nicola & Vicky (The Trustees of LMVI)
