LMH Covid-19 Lockdown NewsClosure

The temporary closure of Lee Memorial hall is expected to continue for the duration of relevant government lockdown restrictions. As of 4th July 2020 the Trustees have decided that for the present demand for use of the hall does not justify the work required to meet current Covid-19 protection standards.  In the meantime, we are still open for bookings for future events.  We already have a number of reservations for wedding receptions in 2021.  If you would like to discuss requirements for similar or other future events, please ring our bookings secretary on (01271) 269 751.


Planned work on replacing the hall floor was successfully undertaken in March and April, with our contractors working to government guidelines.  The flooring is now complete and we are very pleased with the results. 

Plans are in hand for a major clean following this work, but for the moment we do not consdier there is sufficient demand from hall users to implement the full Covid-19 cleaning and other requirements necessary at present to open the hall to the public.  In the meantime we shall keep this policy under review.

Play Area

A new play area has been installed and is now open for use.  However, in order to comply with Covid-19 regulations and recommendations plese could users take note of the following:

  • This Play Area is not supervised, and equipment is not regularly cleaned.
  • Social distancing of 2m MUST always be maintained (or 1m with risk mitigation where 1m is not possible).
  • Only one child is allowed on each piece of equipment at a time.
  • No eating or drinking in the playground
  • Parents/Carers: You will need to clean the equipment before your child uses it. Use hand sanitiser or wipes to clean your children’s hands before and after use.
  • Do not touch your face. Remember to cough or sneeze into a tissue. Take tissues home or put them into the bins provided (use an arm if a tissue is not available).
  • Children’s clothes should be washed when they get home.
  • Families with clinically vulnerable members: Do NOT use the equipment without first cleaning it.

Annual General Meeting

Our Annual General Meeting was originally planned for early May.  We have considered ways we might organise it without calling a public meeting, but have decided it is better to postpone until later in the year.  Our Constitution requires the next meeting to be within 18 months of the previous one – which in theory takes us to October.  In the meantime, the current committee will continue to manage things.

Village Events

People will be aware that we did not hold our annual Spring Fair on the May Bank Holiday Monday.  Likewise the decision has been made not to hold the July Flower Show or August Arts & Crafts Fair in 2020.  In the meantime decisions reagrding the use of the hall later in the year are in abeyance.
