Catbrook Memorial Hall and COVID-19

 

Following the latest Wales Government Lockdown review it has been announced that community centres (including village halls) may open if they wish. However, all the existing stringent safeguarding rules still apply. Therefore, the situation, as far as we are concerned, remains the same as when we decided to keep the Hall closed last Autumn.

 

The Trustees have carefully considered the possibility of reopening the Hall now but have concluded that this will not be possible at present as we will be unable to comply with all the rules applicable. Public venues that have been able to open do so by using their staff to make sure full compliance is adopted. The Hall operates on a totally volunteer run basis and without staff in place it is not possible to ensure full compliance.

The future, however, is more optimistic and further relaxation of the rules is anticipated, at which time the Trustees will carry out another review to see if it is at least possible to organise partial reopening for smaller groups to begin using the hall.

 

It has been a long time since we have been able to enjoy the events and activities put on at the Hall and we very much hope that there will be progress to full reopening as soon as possible so we can all enjoy the benefits of our lovely hall.

Applications for this year are now closed.

Supporting local children and young people with learning and

development grants

 

The Catbrook Educational Trust (CET) was launched in 2004 after a group of                                        residents from the Catbrook community fought to get the proceeds from the sale

of the Catbrook School put into Trust for the children of Catbrook. The Trust was

active for some years, but hasn’t been able to distribute any grants in recent years.

The capital has been carefully protected and with a new board of Trustees we are

now in a position to re-launch the CET.

The Trust was set up with the aim of supporting the education (including social and physical training) of young people under the age of 25, who are or have been resident in the catchment area of the former Catbrook School. This area includes the villages of Catbrook, Broadstone, Whitelye, Parkhouse, Trellech Grange, Cicelyford and Botany Bay.
