Kinsbourne Common Hall, Harpenden

COVID-19 update (as @ 14/8/20)

The hall was out of use due to lockdown, from March to July.  We took the chance to repaint it.


As the current guidance is that parties are a high risk activity, the hall cannot be used for parties until social distancing is suspended.


Our policy is that, from 4 July 2020, the hall is available to weekly hirers who have carried out a thorough risk assessment and are satisfied that they can operate their activity in the hall with an acceptably low level of risk of coronavirus infection. (Naturally, the activity must also be one that is not prohibited or discouraged under government guidance.)


Please note that some vacancies in the calendar may be slots that our previous weekly hirers have not yet resumed using. These can be hired on a temporary basis until the previous hirer wishes to resume (for which at least one month's notice will be given).


It is, as yet, unclear when scouts/cubs/beavers will resume. This will not be before September, but may potentially be longer. In the meantime, we may be able to accept bookings on weekday evenings. Use the enquiry form to find out.


Anyone considering entering the hall for an activity carried on by one of our hirers should make their own judgement about whether it is safe to attend the activity. The organiser of that activity is responsible for determining what measures are practicable and appropriate in the context of the specific activity and you should refer to them to understand the measures they have put in place. Entry to the hall is only permitted on the basis that you understand and accept that Ninth Harpenden Scout Group has no liability for any infection that is alleged to have taken place at the hall.
