CORONA VIRUS / COVID 19 CLOSURE: Sturminster Marshall Memorial Hall is closing until further notice in light of the advice given by the Government. No one is permitted to enter any part of the premises.

All bookings for events between tomorrow and the end of April will be cancelled as there is no prospect of the Hall opening before the end of April. All later bookings will stay in place unless, of course, you have asked for them to be cancelled Towards the end of April a further note will be sent out to the same recipients explaining the position for bookings during May. If at that stage there is no prospect of the Hall opening before the end of May, all bookings for May will be cancelled This process will continue each month until the Hall reopens

During the period the Hall is closed, it will be kept clean and our booking clerk, Kath Kollberg will continue to deal with all new booking enquiries and requests.

This decision has not been taken lightly by our Hall Committee because we know there are hundreds of people who enjoy the facilities at the Memorial Hall each and every week. I also apologise for the short notice, but we thought it was in everyone’s best interest to act without delay.

Finally, can I please ask you to inform anyone else you may know who may be directly affected by this announcement.

Thank you for your understanding and please take care.

Derek Rees

Chair of Sturminster Marshall Memorial Hall Committee
