Covid 19 Update - Arkholme Village Hall


Changes to AVH: What you can expect


We have been working hard to adjust things at the Hall to keep all our visitors and volunteers safe.


- It will be the responsibility of the hirer to ensure any events or activities are carried out in accordance with applicable social distancing guidelines.


- You will enter and exit the building through the main door, which will only be available for hirers at their allotted booking time.


- Hand sanitising facilities will be available throughout the building.


- Facemasks must be worn at all times whilst inside the building


- We have limited occupancy for specific areas of the building (subject to variation due to type of event), once these numbers are reached we will be unable to admit anyone else

Hall Bookings

Weddings will be able to take place when government guidance allows and in accordance with restrictions on numbers.




There are many measures that we have put in place to adhere to the Covid 19 restrictions:


· Minimise contact with individuals who are unwell: Nobody should attend the premises if they have symptoms or are self-isolating due to symptoms in their household.

· Clean your hands often: Sanitiser or soap and water should be provided at entry and exit points, sanitiser and/or running water, soap and paper towels in toilets and kitchens.

· Respiratory hygiene: Everyone needs to be encouraged to avoid touching their mouth, eyes, and nose. Tissues need to be disposed of into a bin, then hands cleaned. A “Catch it, Bin it, Kill it” poster has been put up.

· Regular cleaning of surfaces that are touched frequently: including door handles, handrails, table tops, sinks, toilet areas, kitchen surfaces.

· Follow the latest government guidance on social distancing


As you will be aware, these changes may be with us for some time and we therefore ask you to bear with us during this challenging period of adjustment.

We will be updating this information on a regulally basis as things change so please look out for information on our social pages and the website
