Following the recent Government announcement, step 4 of the roadmap went ahead on the 19th July.
From that date all restrictions were lifted at the Village Hall so children’s parties etc. can recommence.
The hall will be available for bookings at the weekends for children’s parties or other gatherings but will be restricted to one booking on a Saturday and one booking on a Sunday. Please see our website http://siddingtonvillagehall.co.uk or Siddington Village Hall Facebook page for further updates.
The thorough cleaning schedule and other health and safety measures will remain a key on-going priority.
We have also recently drawn up a Village Hall Safeguarding Policy, which is available on our website http://siddingtonvillagehall.co.uk in the Statements and Documents section. If anyone needs to raise any safeguarding concerns, there is now a dedicated email address that is monitored regularly: SVHsafeguarding@gmail.com. The named person for safeguarding concerns at the Hall is Kim Tye.
Centenary Celebrations: We Want to Hear from You
It may only be August, but as you may have read in July’s edition of the Village Newsletter, plans are already afoot for Siddington’s Christmas Carol Concert on Tuesday 21st December 2021 – 100 years to the day when the Village Hall was originally opened by the Right Hon. Earl Bathurst, CMG.
A lot has happened in those 100 years and we want to hear your memories… Those weddings and birthday parties that we have taken place at the Village Hall – please send us your stories and photos! Stories your mum, dad, aunts, uncles, grandparents, or even great-grandparents may have shared with you about events they attended at the Hall, send them on. In particular, we are very keen to discover any stories and photos that your family may have featuring the original opening ceremony from December 1921. Please send your memories to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have photos that you do not wish to depart with, even for a short period, we can arrange for them to be scanned.
We can’t wait to hear from you !
Tickets for the Roaring 20s Speakeasy Party (Saturday 20th November) will go on sale in September so keep your eyes peeled. In the meantime, if you would like to get involved with the celebrations, please contact email@example.com.
