Plans for Stainton Village Hall Re-opening

In line with government guidance we are not yet able to reopen the village hall. We are however putting in place the necessary plans, procedures and equipment to reopen on a limited basis once the government gives the go ahead, possibly sometime in July. When we reopen we will need to strictly abide to whatever Government guidance is in place at the time including social distancing rules. This will mean initially it will only be possible to use the Hall for limited numbers of people and purposes. Our first activity will be the re-opening outside the Hall of the Farmers Market on Saturday July 18th starting at 9.30 – 12.30.

We will post updates as and when we can to Hall users directly as well as here on our website at and our Facebook page @staintonvhall
