Catbrook and District Memorial Hall Closure
Events are gradually reappearing as the hall is now open - keep checking back for all the dates!
To keep everyone safe the hall has been cleaned thoroughly and anyone organising an event has to complete a risk assessment. Basic requirements include the following, and additional guidelines may be necessary for certain clubs or events. Please contact the organiser if you need any additional information for a particular event.
In one door and out the other
Windows and doors kept open to optimise ventilation
Hand sanitiser will be available
If anyone has any symptoms - even if not tested positive - they must NOT attend ( e.g. cough, sore throat, runny nose, temperature, headache)
It is assumed anyone attending the hall has been "double jabbed"
Face masks are not mandatory but if you wish to wear one that is absolutely fine and down to personal choice
Social distancing will be maintained wherever possible
Numbers of people attending events will be kept within sensible limits for the size of the hall
There is also a Risk Assessment in force for the hall as a whole - please click HERE to read this document.

Provisional date... we're trying to licence a cracking movie to restart the film nights. Watch this space!
A new 5.1 surround sound system is in the process of being installed, which will help with the clarity of speech. The system has been kindly and freely donated by On Screen Productions. Hopefully the new brighter and higher resolution projector will also be installed, bringing the hall up to the same specification as commercial cinemas for your further enjoyment!.
Sunday 14 November 3pm
A traditional Remembrance Service will be held at the hall, accompanied by Monmouth Band.
There will be refreshments after the service and the hall will welcome anyone who wishes to attend.
Sunday 21 November 2pm - around 4pm

Come along and have a go at making your own Christmas Tree decoration or simply explore your artistic side! This is a taster session to see if there is interest in forming an art group for young and old alike.

Village Carol Singing
Sunday 19 December
If you've made a lantern at the workshop in November, this is your chance to show it off. Originally planned for 2020 and with details still to be confirmed, we hope that there will be singing in various places around Catbrook and Broadstone, finishing at the Memorial Hall for refreshments. Everyone will be welcome!
