Pett Village Hall: Exercise Classes and Face Coverings

As already posted, from 8 August it will be a requirement for people using Pett Village Hall to use a face covering.

But there is confusion about whether this requirement will also apply to people whilst they are actually exercising in an exercise class. The Government has confirmed that there is currently no requirement for people exercising in a gym to wear a face covering  whilst actually exercising.

Pett Village Hall Management Committee have given careful thought to this issue, and have decided that the following will apply:

Until told definitively otherwise by regulation, Pett Village Hall Management Committee will NOT require people to wear masks when actually exercising in the village hall, but will ask them to wear them at other times, eg when entering or leaving the hall. All other users must wear a face covering at all times from 8 August.

500 Club Draw – July

The July 500 Club draw will take place at Pett Village Hall at 11.00am on Wednesday 5 August during the Community Library. Please comply with social distancing requirements. Many thanks.

Please Don’t Park on the Pavement

Just a polite reminder that instead of parking on the pavements you are very welcome to park in the car park at Pett Village Hall. Parking on the pavements causes problems for pedestrians, especially those with buggies and people with disabilities, and blocks the vision of car drivers leaving their drives. It also makes social distancing difficult. Thank you.

Community Library – 5 August

Community Library Notes

We are back!!! Thanks to Tim Rothwell and all who have been keeping the Village Hall ticking over, we are able to re-open the Community Library at Pett Village Hall in August.

Anne and Tim are unable to restart the Coffee Morning, but you are very welcome to bring your own drinks and meet friends outside on the picnic benches at the back of the main hall. Please take responsibility for your own and others’ well-being and observe social distancing rules.

We will display the books in accordance with guidelines at the time, to encourage social distancing. And something else that might interest you – we are now lending out jigsaw puzzles. We’re looking forward to seeing you back and hope you can use this opportunity to meet up with friends, especially those whom you might not have seen for a while.

Community Library only, no coffee morning yet, 10 – 12 August 5th.
