MMVI re-opening update...

As you may know, MMVI has been closed for its usual activities and events since 23rd March, following the country wide imposed lockdown due to COVID 19. Latterly it has only opened once a week for the visiting Post Office,  deemed an  ‘essential service’ (and this service will continue every Tuesday between 9.30-11.30am).

Following the Government’s most recent announcement on the further relaxation of the Lockdown Rules you will have heard that a number of venues including village halls , CAN re-open as of 4th July. ‘CAN’ rather than ‘MUST’.

In anticipation of that, we, the Trustees have considered the resulting guidance issued and were represented at a recent meeting organised by ‘ACTion with Communities in Cumbria (which links the village hall network) on the very subject of re-opening. This was then discussed by us, at an extraordinary meeting held on 29th June.

Whilst we too, like you,  have missed our monthly get togethers at ‘coffeee mornings’ and ‘afternoon teas’ and other regular group activities held at MMVI, all of which bring our community together, YOUR safety and that of OUR VOLUNTEERS (on whom we rely so much) is of the paramount concern to us. It is therefore, for that reason that we have decided NOT to re-open on 4th July, and to remain closed. We will keep the situation under regular review in light of further guidance as and when issued and will keep you updated.

Thank you for your understanding.

We hope that this update finds you all well and keeping safe.

Margaret, Vanda, Sarah, Brian,  Bob, and Adele (The Trustees of MMVI)

About MMVI

Maulds Meaburn Village Institute (MMVI)exists to provide a service for the community, bringing people together through a varied programme of events throughout the year and offering a great venue for social activities and a meeting place for clubs and organisations.

MMVI is a community venue, run by volunteers from the local area – from committee members to dedicated people who help in all sorts of ways. Our volunteers come from all walks of life, but what we all have in common is that we want the Institute to be a vibrant hub for the community, bringing people together.

We always welcome extra pairs of hands and there are lots of ways to help out, whether you can spare a little time or a lot.

Could you help as a volunteer? - Visit our volunteering page to find out more.
