Welcome to the Combe Village Hall and Recreation Ground Committee Website.

Guidance for the use of Combe Village Hall and Recreation Grounds during the current Coronavirus Crisis – 20th March 2020


The UK government is issuing guidance regularly. Detailed advice can be found on the Public Health England website, NHS.UK and, Foreign and Commonwealth Office websites.
Important UK government guidance was issued on 16th March 2020 regarding “social distancing”. This includes advice relating to higher risk groups and ways of limiting social contact particularly as regards vulnerable people..
The ECB have announced that all cricket matches should be postponed and all other activities should be suspended and the Football Association have announced that all matches should be postponed.
In the circumstances the Trustees of the Village Hall and Recreation Grounds have decided to close the pavilion with immediate effectuntil further notice. However sporting and recreational activities may continue outside on the playing fields where such activities take place in line with government guidance as it develops. In these circumstances, the responsibility for monitoring government guidance will lie with the users of the playing fields or with those responsible for sports clubs such as Combe Junior Sports and the Combe Cricket Club, working with parents and other stakeholders.
Unfortunately this means that we have had to advise those affected that any lettings booked to date will need to be postponed. At this stage, we are only giving this advice in respect of lettings during the period until 30th April 2020. We will update the position at the end of April. We very much hope we will be able to agreealternative dates as soon as the government guidance is relaxed.
