NORTH KESSOCK VILLAGE HALL COVID-19 UPDATE
The hall has a one-way system in place – entry by the main door and exit via the kitchen external door. There are hand sanitisers at the entry and exit points. There will only be one toilet available - which will be the disabled toilet. The hall floor has been marked off with two metre markings and usage will be limited to 12 people in total. During use the kitchen window must be opened, and the hall ventilation fan set to extract to ensure adequate ventilation. Use of the kitchen and meeting room is not permitted.
As part of Test and Protect, user groups must register contact details for people using the hall and share them with us - where they will be kept for 21 days. In addition, as a further Test and Protect measure the hall has registered with Check In Scotland for a QR code for the hall like the one below.
When you first scan the hall’s unique QR code by pointing your mobile phone camera, it will launch a Check In Scotland online form on your phone. You need to enter your contact details, including name and contact number, and click 'check in' to confirm you are at the hall. This will record the date and time you arrived. When you leave, you should check out. If you still have the online form open on your phone, you just need to press 'check out'. If you do not have the online form open, you can check out by rescanning your venue's QR code. The QR codes will be displayed at the entry and exit points as well as several places in the hall."
REQUIREMENT OF USER GROUPS
In the lead up to the reopening the Hall board would like all user groups to complete a new risk assessment (RA) for their activity (even if they have already submitted one). 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. To help with completing your group RA we include the current RA for the Hall, as well as the Special Conditions of Hire that will be in place for all users hiring the Hall during the pandemic.
North Kessock Village Hall (NKVH) has become a Scottish Charitable Incorporate Organisation (SCIO). Following the (hopefully imminent) completion of the lengthy legal process to transfer title of the hall to the SCIO, which involves three firms of solicitors, the current NKVH Board intend to hold an AGM.
The Board have received early indications that the majority of current Board members intend to stand down, and at this early stage would like to encourage NKVH members to consider standing for membership of the new Board.
The Board will need members with a variety of different skills and interests to enable it to function effectively (e.g., IT, experience of submitting grant applications, building maintenance, administration, health and safety, business, finance, etc.) - however enthusiasm is the main requirement!
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 and email it to email@example.com or post it to the North Kessock Village Hall, Marine Drive, North Kessock IV1 3XS 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.
