Knitting up a storm at the Village Hall… from Monday 26 July

We are pleased to announce that Knit and Natter starts again at Metfield Village Hall on Monday 26 July at the usual time of 2pm till 4pm.

Although the government has announced that restrictions will be lifted on 19 July, the Village Hall Committee is continuing to be cautious. So the meeting will be in the hall itself so that social distancing will be possible. Hand sanitisers are located around the building which you are encouraged to use and, although we will still be providing refreshments, you are encouraged to bring your own mug along.

We know we don’t have to remind you to please stay at home if you have tested positive or have come into contact with anyone who has tested positive in the previous 14 days.

Please also be aware that we will be complying with track and trace requirements – keeping contact details of everyone who attends, for a period of 21 days after each session whereupon they will be destroyed.

We hope to see you on 26th!

Frankie and Debbie

Roll up! Roll up! Metfield Village Hall Bar reopens this Friday!

It’s the news you’ve all been waiting for… the bar will open at 5pm on Friday 23 July and you’ll be welcomed as usual with cheery smiles and jolly banter.

Initially, for the summer, it will be from 5pm till late on Friday evenings only, unless there is a special event planned, when it may also be open on a Saturday. For example, on Saturday 7 August there will be Bingo in the main hall from 7.30pm, with drinks available from 7pm.

Despite the 19 July easing of Covid regulations, the Village Hall Bar will operate a range of Covid measures to ensure the safety of both customers and volunteers. Sanitising stations are located at various places around the hall and customers are encouraged to use these. Customer seating will be socially distanced outside on the patio and in the main hall.

Come along and catch up with your friends, neighbours, mates, whatever – and enjoy a drink in a relaxed setting.
