Pett Village Hall – Track and Trace

On 24 September the government is launching a new NHS app to help trace and restrict the spread of coronavirus in our communities. Many businesses and venues in East Sussex need to take some simple but immediate action to prepare for this.
These places must print and display a poster with a scannable QR code issued by the government. This will allow anyone with the app to scan the poster on their mobile phone as they enter the premises to record their contact details.
They can then be contacted with health advice by the NHS if they have been close to someone with the virus.
This includes Pett Village Hall and this poster will be displayed in the Hall. Please scan the QR Code if you have the App on your phone. Many thanks.

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
