War Memorial Hall
Annual General Meeting
Virtual Meeting Through ZOOM

All inhabitants of the parish of High Halden are invited to the High Halden War Memorial Hall’s AGM. This is an opportunity to hear about:
- what has gone on over the past 12 months (including updates on the impact of COVID 19, improvements at the hall & the kitchen project)
- the hall’s financial position
- what is planned for the coming period
Input, feedback and ideas from those who have or have not used the hall are needed to allow decisions and the management of this important village facility to evolve and meet the changing needs of the village.
Elections to the management committee will be held during the meeting. Whilst we have some nominations, we very much need new people on the committee to bring fresh ideas and perspectives and to ensure that the committees reflects the makeup of the village community.

UPDATE 25TH AUGUST 2020
The hall management committee is pleased to announce that the hall will begin a staged reopening from the 1st September. In line with government Guidance and supplementary guidance from ACRE (Action with Communities in Rural England) COVID 19 guidelines and processes, to ensure that the hall can open safely and be COVID secure, have been agreed. A risk assessment has been completed and the appropriate sanitisation, cleaning and PPE equipment are available.
Please see the COVID 19 Guidance Sub page for the hall for lots more information.
These guidelines and the opening will be kept under close review but we hope that we will be able to extend the opening over the coming weeks and months. Any requests for hire will be considered against these guidelines.
If you have any queries please contact us at [email protected]
