Barrow Village Hall

Covid-19

The Village Hall is available for use subject to current Government guidelines and coronavirus regulations.

When indoor gathering are permissible the hall will be available for hire and the regular classes and activities will resume as soon as possible.

Whilst the hall is the largest function room available for private hire in the village the capacities that attend any single event are may still be limited under the coronavirus rules. In addition certain activities, such as close contact sports and choir practice, may remain restricted. Course providers and event hosts are responsible for ensuring their activity or event is full compliant with the regulations in force at the time.

As you might expect there are a set of “Special Conditions of Hire Covid-19” which are now in place. The conditions are aimed at ensuring all persons involved in hiring the hall understand and appreciate the extent of their involvement in managing Covid-19 risk for the period of the hire. ​One essential element is that organisers of events will be required to collect contact details for attendees and hold those records for 21 days.

In order to allow hirers additional time to prepare for their event, and to undertake the required cleaning regimes afterwards, hire periods are being extended by 20 minutes before and 20 after the booked period - free of charge.

The Village Hall is a community facility for the use of all villagers and as such we welcome any enquiries about hire. If you feel that you would like to hire the hall but are unsure about what activities you can and cannot undertake, or require any guidance, please do not hesitate to email us and we will get back to you.
