An interesting item appears on the Agenda for next week's meeting of the Parish Council.
Item 10 is all about Broadband coverage in some parts of the parish, namely Darrow Green and Manor Farm Road.
As usual, the meeting is open to the public, with comments on agenda items welcome, but, as it is to be held via video-conferencing, those wishing to "attend" need to contact the Clerk in advance. Details are on the website.
The previously reported first venture into re-opening the Village Hall Bar, on August 21st, proved to be a great success so another similar event, but with a few changes, is to be organised on Friday September 4th from 6 to 9pm.
This time suitably spaced tables and chairs will be used in the hall itself. There will be a one way system through the hall to minimise risk and help with social distancing. Entry will be through the Pool Room and exit will be through the main hall door. To avoid pinch points, men will use the disabled toilet near the bar and women the toilet in the new extension by the kitchen. Hand sanitiser will be provided on entry and exit.
Service this week will be to your table. Just sit down where you like and the bar staff will take your orders and bring your drinks to you. We will again keep a note of people’s orders and you will be asked to pay once, before you leave, by cash or cheque to minimise the need to handle money.
Everyone will need to follow social distancing guidance and children will need to be closely supervised.
