RECENT INTENTIONS and THEIR PROGRESS
PLEASE SEE BELOW an update of our dedication to fulfil our promises to our users
As we are all aware the threat of the Corona Virus is dictating the way we live our lives, at least for the forseeable future. The effects of this are wide and varied and we all must hope that the situation can be resolved speedily, especially if this will minimise the sad losses of life we are experiencing.
The members of the committee here at Little Waltham Memorial Hall wish that everyone will stay safe and will get through this awful time.
Our reaction to the government call to close our venue was swiftly carried out and hope that, by doing so, we have contributed in helping to prevent the spread of this calous virus.
As we are now confident that you, our hirers and users, can once again be safe in this public meeting place, we have opened once again. We are obviously keeping a very close watch on all developments in this respect and will take the lead from our Government as to ny directions we receive.
In the meantime, we have, within the confines of social distancing, made progress with small improvements and other aspects. We hope these will benefit the hall and our users. Trying to make the most of the 'down time' we have now completed the following tasks
We have many more tasks to carry out in the future which we hope will improve the facilities for everyone's benefit. They will be listed as projects on our 'About Us' page on this site. That, however, is also currently one of the tasks to be addressed and will be available in the very near future for you to view.

At the moment we have restricted the use to groups of our regular users

We have conducted a thorough COVID-19 RISK ASSESSMENT
and identified our areas of risk and what we should action
The Hall has been subjected to DEEP CLEANING
We have installed HAND SANITISERS, ALCOHOL GEL DISPENSERS and GLOVES along with other items for the use of our users.
There is a ONE WAY system in place in an area where it may be more difficult to maintain social distancing
We have SPECIAL CONDITIONS of HIRE in place to
advise and direct about
SAFE PRACTICE in our Hall

COMPREHENSIVE CLEANING REGIMES
We have placed INSTRUCTIONAL POSTERS to assist your movements
We have MARKED OUT the floor area with 1.5 mtr DISTANCING

We continue to be available for contact if you have any questions or suggestions
that you may you wish us to consider.
Please see our contact page for ways to do this
Update at 14th March 2021
We continue to follow both Government and other guidance
this is clarified by advice from
ACRE (Action with Communities in Rural England)
clicking the link will take you to that guidance
We are all getting there
In that respect, our ability to keep the Hall open may change at short notice but we will update this website as soon as possible if that changes.
WE are OPEN
at this point in time and in keeping with the advice ...
As a Venue following COVID-19 secure guidelines we may still open
as we cater for a Pre-School and also act as a place of worship for the RCCG church
Other groups and activities will be able to operate within the hall once again.
These will be phased back in as the guidance and 4 step roadmap permits.
