St Patrick’s Church Hall

PARISH HALL FACILITIES – although the Government has given the green light to restart the use of hall facilities they can only be used for a very limited type of event. Furthermore, the recent government guidelines regarding groups of 6 has made things uncertain. Having reviewed the necessary documentation surrounding the reopening of the hall, we note that as well as implementing social distancing, one-way systems, sanitizing stations etc. it is necessary for the hall facilities to be thoroughly cleaned after every use, which cannot be done by the hirer of the facility. In view of the very small numbers that we would be allowed to accommodate and the cost of cleaning and sanitization, we are sadly unable to open the hall at present. This is naturally impacting our income, so we thank those who are able to continue give to the parish through the ways listed below.
