Here at CFWI, we’ve received a number of enquiries from WIs and WI members about how and when to re-open their halls.
Some of you belong to WIs that own their own halls, some of you serve on committees of your local halls and some of you just may be curious as to how this will all proceed.
We have contacted NFWI and are awaiting guidance. As soon as we receive any information, we will, of course, pass it on to our WIs. In the meantime, however, this document may be of interest to you.
The link given above pertains to Cornwall Rural Community Council (CRCC), which has been working with other Rural Community Councils across England to develop guidance on the reopening of village halls. Confirmation was given on 22 June by the Government that community centres and village halls can reopen from the 4 July, providing they are COVID secure.
There is useful information available, so please do have a read through the document and all of its links.
