Village Hall information in All About Ferring magazine
Since July Ferring Village Hall will still have been closed, however during that time the Government will have issued it’s guidelines for the possible reopening of Village Halls and Community Centres. The Trustees of our Hall will have met to discuss these guidelines and to consider whether it will be safe to reopen our doors once again.
These guidelines are lengthy and demanding and will need careful examination of the contents as to whether we are in a position to put in place sufficient safety measures to ensure all attending members of the public will be safe from the coronavirus. If and when we open it will be expected that all clubs and societies will also play their part in ensuring all guidelines given out are adhered to, thus ensuring the safety of their members.
