Portesham Village Hall 

The Hall provides a Covid secure environment for permitted users. The Government Regulations are fluid at present and it is suggested that anyone interested in hiring the hall contact the Bookings Officer, Keith Brignell on 07818032416.


Currently, lockdown activities are limited to the Post Office (Thursdays 11.00 - 13.00) and Portesham Surgery's vaccination clinics (variable times).

The maximum number the Hall is permitted to hold, under the Covid regulations, is 37, seated 2 metres apart unless living in the same household. For exercise classes, the maximum permitted is 15. Exercise classes and sporting activities which might lead to social interaction among people from different households are not currently permitted.

We are safeguarding our Covid Secure status by placing certain restrictions on hiring. We are limiting the number of groups using the Hall at any one time; normally hiring only the Main Hall and not allowing any food or refreshments to be brought in, apart from bottled drinks.

The kitchen, Ron Doble and Hardy rooms and main toilets are all closed but the disabled toilet, off the foyer, may be used.

Please note: Government regulations require everyone to wear a face covering while in the Hall, except when drinking or exercising.

We are following guidance set down by ACRE (Action with Communities in Rural England),

at www.acre.org.uk

The Hall's Management Committee will meet at least quarterly in

2021 with additional meetings, as needed, to enable us to respond

to any rule changes. 

The current schedule is:
