On October 7th at 10, the Coffee Morning will be back and we are really looking forward to seeing you again. Please bear In mind that we need to adhere to government guidelines and that includes asking you to bring a mask and your own cup. Hopefully, the weather will continue fine and we can meet outside. As you can see, we have been able to set up the library outside and that has been very successful. And great to catch up with some of you we haven’t seen for a while.

If you are unable to stay for coffee, you are still welcome to call by to purchase cake or scones. All contributions help us to keep the village hall open for the library to operate.

Next date for Library AND Coffee Morning is Wednesday 7th October, 10 – 12. Hope to see you there!!

We are so excited to invite you back to the village hall on the 7th October
Seating will be limited but if the weather is fine there will be some seating outside. Hand gel will be available at the entrance, face covering must be worn unless eating or drinking and no more than 6 at a table. We cannot use the hall crockery so please bring your own mug although we will have eco cups and plates if need be.
We have missed seeing you all and so hope some of you can make it, we will still be supporting the village hall by hiring the hall for the library as well so your support will be very welcome. Even if you do not wish to stay for a drink please feel free to come along and buy some cake or a cheese scone to take home.
Best wishes
Tim and Anne

East Sussex County nCouncil Latets Update

The latest Covid update from East Sussex County Council can be read here

East Sussex CC Covid Update


I am very pleased to say that I have received confirmation this morning that yesterday’s announcement by the Government regarding social distancing does not affect Covid-secure activities at Village Halls and so our regular bookings at Pett Village Hall can continue as normal. There will still be difficulties in hosting some other events such as parties.
Here is the advice from Action in Rural Sussex (AIRS).
Tim Rothwell
Chair, PVHMC
‘The Community Facilities Guidance has been re-issued by the Government today and makes clear that Covid Secure halls can host more than 6 people, subject to their own capacity limits, but no one should visit or socialise in a group greater than 6. As halls and hirers should have social distancing in place already this should not prevent community activities continuing, though some may perhaps need to make slight adjustments to layout.
Similarly outdoor events organised by charities or political organisations, businesses or public bodies can continue with more than 6.’
