The Trustees had a meeting on July 14th to discuss the playground equipment and we have decided that for the time being the equipment has to remain closed. The guidelines and the risk assessments necessary to make it Covid-19 safe are very firm and we cannot currently comply with them to our satisfaction. We will keep a close watch on what we need to do. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you need further information, either on here or via the Facebook page.
Sadly the decision has been made to cancel the Fete which was going to be on July 26th. We're very hopeful that the Show will go ahead in September, possibly in a marquee. Details to follow.
The Hall AGM of April 21st was held virtually by the Trustees. It was announced that Andrew Cuthbert was to retire as Chairman. Andrew was a “Founding Member” of the Memorial Hall Committee in 1999 and absolutely key in organising the necessary grants, permissions, designs and plans for the wonderful Hall we know and love today. He was Chairman from 1999 until 2013 when Alex Wales took over. Andrew then returned as Chairman in 2016 for what was going to be a short time at the helm but ended up being in post for another 4 years. He has spent a large part of his life being a guiding light and devoted mentor to the Hall and it isn’t too much of a stretch to say that without him, the Hall would very probably not exist. He will be very much missed by the remaining Trustees and when this is all over, we will be raising a glass to Andrew in thanks for all his hard work over the years.
We are delighted that Andy Marsh will be taking over as Chairman.
Our lovely friend Alicia Stark, who lives in Glandford (and is a Ballymaloe trained chef) is making delicious food delivered to your doorstep. Please don't hesitate to contact her if you or anyone you know might be interested!
With apologies but the coronavirus means that we now have to close the childrens' play area and all the equipment and the playing field for the foreseeable future.
Please note that there is now a designated coronovirus information page on the website between the 'Home' and the 'About Binham' on the main task bar. This is will be updated as often as we can manage with information from the Parish Council and from the Government. It has useful numbers on it, it has links to the government website. Let us know if you need anything more.
Here you will find information about past and future events happening at The Binham Village Memorial Hall.
