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 soon as we are confident that you, our hirers and users, can once again be safe in this public meeting place, we will be opening 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 when re-openng might once again be possible.
In the meantime, we are, within the confines of social distancing, making any progress we can 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 already 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.
Due to the Covid-19 situation
along with Government directives we shall be closed until the situation allows for us to re-open.
This also affects all our regular user groups.
We send everyone our best wishes and that you stay safe and well.
We look forawrd to seeing you again in the near future!
Little Waltham Memorial Hall
Even in these days of current dis - array we still remember the great moments from our past.
The Victory in Europe by our forces and Allies paved the way forward to finally ending the Second World War in 1945.
This is certainly one of those memorable times that we should never forget

Thank You to you all for JOINING US in this celebration
Second hand books have been placed in the Entrance porch of the hall.
These are for everyone to browse, read and replace or donate your own.
Please note: all book covers are being 'cleaned' as we understand and should anyone wish to add to the box we respectfully ask that you do the same with the safety of the future reader in mind.
We will take this opportunity to say THANK YOU
to those who instigated this facility, it was a grand gesture and seems to be well received by the locality.
CORONA VIRUS COVID - 19
As of 26th May 2020
We are pleased to see that figures are descending with regard to the sitaution of Corona virus and it gives us some hope that we will be able to re-open at sometime in the near future.
Venues such as our hall are expected to be in the final stages of the easing of restrictions as it is a place for large gatherings of people and cannot be effected until the Social distancing rule is relaxed .
It may be that we will open firstly for the use of the Pre-School, but we will only go forward in that way if it is sensible and safe for everyone to use the Hall and of course depending on the advice of the Government.
We continue to be available for contact if you have any questions or suggestions you wish us to consider.
