Thornham Village Hall – Coronavirus Update
Compared with what is going on in the rest of the world, the fortunes of TVH are insignificant, but the Hall is an integral part of life in the village, and I thought an update on what the Trustees are doing might be helpful.
All Hall activities, including weddings and christenings, over the next three months, have now been cancelled or postponed. In all cases we have been able to arrange future dates for the events to take place, though it is clearly impossible to predict the future at this stage.
We have battened down the hatches on the Hall, turned off the heating, emptied all the freezers and taken every action we can to reduce our overhead costs. We have a brilliant support team in Sally, Emma and Adrian. We have rearranged Sally and Emma’s responsibilities in the short term to allow them to concentrate on important issues, which were falling between the cracks in the day to day running of the business. We will take this opportunity to overhaul our website, to prepare marketing and publicity brochures and to bring in a more robust online booking system. Adrian is fully occupied keeping the Playing Field in good condition.
Sadly the start of the cricket season has been pushed back, which is a great shame, as the team has been going from strength to strength and cricket for ladies and children have been started up.
We have also had to close down the Children’s Play Area , Adult Exercise Area and Tennis Court. The timing of this is unfortunate, as work on a new piece of equipment, a log pile, for slightly older children, has just been completed and we were looking forward to seeing it in use.
Although classes in the Hall have been cancelled, there are still activities taking place online in which you are welcome to join. Julia-Ann is running YouTube Zumba classes live at her normal time free and Clare (yoga lady) has reduced cost online classes.
