NORTH KESSOCK VILLAGE HALL COVID-19 UPDATE
The following is a copy of information emailed to all regular hall user groups on 7th October 2020
"As a result of the recent surge in Covid-19 cases the North Kessock Village Hall board are delaying any decision on reopening the hall until the first week in November. Because we are still in phase 3, with no immediate prospect of going into phase 4, it is highly likely that when the hall does reopen it will be only for low risk activities. These activities are those that do not involve heavy respiration and perspiration and will be socially distanced.
In the lead up to the reopening the Hall board would like all user groups to complete a risk assessment (RA) for their activity. If the group’s activity is governed by a professional body, then the RA should reflect the Covid-19 RA guidance from the professional body. A risk assessment template from the Health and Safety Executive is included for you to fill in the RA details for your group.
Also taking place in the background are some complex legal activities to transfer ownership of the hall from property trustees of the previous unincorporated charity NKAA (North Kessock Amenities Association) to the incorporated charity NKVH (North Kessock Village Hall SCIO) which now runs the Hall. When completed, and the hall has reopened, the overdue Annual General Meeting of North Kessock Village Hall SCIO will be held. This will be an opportunity for new people to join the Board, for fresh ideas, for fundraising initiatives, volunteer groups set up for maintenance etc.
You need to be a member of the North Kessock Village Hall (SCIO) charity to be elected to the Board (see below to join the charity). If you would like to become a member please complete an application form (from www.kessock-hall.net) and post it to the North Kessock Village Hall, Marine Drive, North Kessock IV1 3XS or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org attaching the completed form. Membership is open to any individual aged 16 or over who is resident in the North Kessock postal district. Board meetings are held at 7.00pm on the second Wednesday of each month, in the Meeting Room at the Hall.
