The following is the report given by the Trustees of the Village Hall on 11th April 2022.

Scarning Village Hall & Estate Trustees and staff have worked tirelessly throughout the Covid period to bring Scarning Village Hall, its premises and facilities up to a very high standard. It is a perfect medium sized letting hall for the village and surrounding district.

Village and Community Halls provide an important focal point for local residents and host a wide range of events and activities. Scarning Village Hall regularly hires out its facilities for monthly Coffee Mornings (a great opportunity to catch up with neighbours and friends and raise much needed funds for the Church), weekly Table Tennis Clubs, Village Hall, Parish Council, PCC and WI Meetings, together with The Dirty Donkey Do, children‘s parties and other private events to name but a few.

With the Government having removed the remaining domestic COVID restrictions in England, guidance suggests there are still easy and effective actions which we can all take to minimise the risk of catching COVID and keep ourselves and others safe. Scarning Village Hall & Estate Trust takes a sensible, proportionate approach to Health and Safety which is key to ensuring that the Hall provides a safe and healthy place for people to use. During these challenging times the Trust has continued to work for the benefit of the local community and continues to make every effort to ensure that Scarning Village Hall, with its excellent facilities and attention to detail, is a safe and welcoming environment. This means that, once again, everyone has the opportunity to embrace and enjoy regular village activities.

Spring is on its way, evenings are getting lighter and we look forward to days filled with sunshine, laughter and exciting events including Village celebrations over a period of four days for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in June – a once in a lifetime opportunity for everyone to enjoy.

Our new extended kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, oven and hob, a large fridge and serving hatch, together with small meeting room and spacious main hall makes this an ideal venue for informal gatherings and parties. With the added facility of Wi-Fi this now opens the doors for business meetings, seminars and other presentations, courses etc.

The Trustees are planning with the Playing Field Committee and Scarning Parish Council to work together to improve off road car parking. This will be a new and exciting development and we look forward to helping to make this project a reality sometime in the future.”
