Ashreigney Village Hall
ASHREIGNEY VILLAGE HALL HAVE SHARED HOW THEY ARE LOOKING AFTER THE HALL AND SUPPORTING THE COMMUNITY DURING THE COVID19 RESTRICTIONS
The Hall is now closed except for Friday mornings 0900-1100hrs when our Post Service operates.
The Foyer is cleaned on a Thursday afternoon each week prior to its opening and our Risk Assessment has been updated accordingly. The Hall is physically checked twice a week by 2 Charity Trustees to ensure that all is fine. We will look to turn off the heating in the next couple of weeks; all other electrical items have been switched off.
We have reduced the Committee to a quorum so that any decisions that have to be made can be done more quickly; this was done with all Trustees knowledge and agreement.
On the Contingency side, our Contingency Gold Group meets over Zoom and information is promulgated down through the ashreigneyhelp email.
We have a list of volunteers who have all been individually contacted by email and been given guidance on protocol, health and safety and general well being.
We have also produced a list of local producers and shops with contact details and payment methods as well as price lists.
The Co-ordinator manages the list of volunteers and updates information as we feed it in to her.
Following the delivery of the Ashreigney and Riddlecombe Emergency Measures information sheet to all households which provides the names and contact details of the co-ordinators and how to seek assistance, we currently have a number of active requests for help which are being managed.
I should also say that the community is managing a lot of self help and care for neighbours and friends; the purpose of the volunteers is to fill the gaps where existing support networks fail or have not been established.
Our church bells ring out every Thursday at 8pm and last Thursday we had a wonderful accompaniment of drums as well as clapping!
