Coronavirus (Covid-19) 6.4.21

The Smythe Hall Management Committee carried out a hall risk assessment on 6.4.21 in line with government guidance and (Action with Communities in Rural England) and are pleased that we can reopen as follows.

Step 2 - 12.4.21 - community centres can reopen & indoor leisure facilities may open for supervised sport and physical activity for under-18s and for you to exercise on your own, or with your household or support bubble. You must not socialise indoors with anyone you do not live with, unless you have formed a support bubble with them.
Step 3 - 17.5.21 - controlled indoor events may be able to take place with up to 50% capacity with the 'rule of six' or two households, therefore a maximum of 30 people.

Step 4 - 21.6.21 it is hoped all legal limits on social contact are removed.

To keep the hall Covid-19 secure we have updated The Smythe Hall Special Conditions of Hire, for more information please call 01621 828536.
