Semley Village Hall Re-Opening on May 17th 2021

The Village Hall Management Committee is pleased to announce that Semley Village Hall will be reopening for indoor activities on May 17th.

We have significantly improved the facilities at the hall during the last 12 months, with financial support from Wiltshire Council and Semley Village Stores for which we are extremely grateful.

Inside, we have improved looks, cleanliness, and hygiene by refurbishing the wood floor and painting the wood panelling in the main hall and installing UPVC cladding on the walls and shelf units in the toilets. Outside, we have improved looks, safety and security by installing new wood fencing and gates, completing the off-road parking area, surfacing the lay-by and installing new proximity lighting around the hall.

Initially, we will be limiting numbers of users inside the hall to 50% capacity, require users to abide by the “rule of 6”, and social distancing, prior to opening without restrictions on June 21st. Please contact Andy Roger, our Booking Secretary, on 07484 349701 or via semleyvillagehall@gmail.com to discuss availability.

The Play Area is available to everyone in the community and hirers of the hall in accordance with government guidelines for outside activities.

Pre-School Nursery Provision

Regretfully, South Hills Nursery has notified parents and the hall committee that it will end Pre-School Nursery provision at the hall at the start of the half term holiday at the end of May due to staffing difficulties. Recognising the clear need for a pre-school nursery in Semley, we are in discussions with another provider to see if it can replace South Hills starting in early June to provide continuity of service through to the end of the school year.

To help the new provider understand how much demand there is, please let us know if you are interested in using the nursery at the hall during the school year starting in September, by emailing SemleyVillageHall@gmail.com.
