Hirers return to Bury village hall

We are pleased to report that, with the advent of Step 2 of the Roadmap, this week will see the return of two of our regular hirers to Bury Village Hall. Although community halls still cannot stage stage indoor social gatherings, they can open for such purposes as formal education or training, registered childcare, support groups and for supervised activities for children (not birthday parties, though!). Consequently, the Boathouse Ballet School and the Matt Fiddes Martial Arts Group are resuming their weekly slots and we look forward to the eventual return of Barry and Sue Bird with the Bury and Pulborough Dance Club, possibly at Step 3 but we await further confirmation. We were also pleased to hear from the Martlet Indoor Short Mat Bowls group that they intend to return to the hall in September once their outdoor summer programme finishes.

As things stand, it will be Step 4 on 21st June at the earliest before we can contemplate using the hall for any kind of social activities – and even then, there may be some degree of ongoing social contact restrictions we will have to observe. If you are contemplating holding an event or celebration during the second half of the year, we would be happy to make a provisional booking although this would obviously be subject to any ongoing COVID-19 or other Government restrictions at the time. This website contains information on hiring the village hall and/or if you would like some more information please contact our village hall manager, Judith Daykin at
