 (acre—updated 02-03-2021)

 There will be a phased re-opening of the Parish Hall (see below)

From May 17th:
  • Controlled events can take place with up to 50% capacity, but people mustn’t congregate in groups of more than 6.
  • Hospitality settings will be able to open in accordance with the “rule of 6”, so community cafes, coffee mornings and social clubs can take place.

  • Indoor sports activities, including exercise classes, table tennis, badminton can take place.
  • Up to 30 people will be able to attend weddings, receptions, funerals and wakes.

    General Coronavirus changes include: providing hand sanitisers; screens at the serving hatches in the kitchen and the bar; paper towel dispensers in the lavatories rather than hot air blowers; etc.
