CHESWICK GREEN RESIDENTS ASSOCIATION
Forwarded from the Village Hall Management Committee
During the pandemic, members of the committee, the Booking Clerk and Cleaner have been working to ensure that Cheswick Green Village Hall is a CoViD secure building. They have been conscious of the balance between keeping this vital community asset open for the health and wellbeing of the community and the risk of infection spread by its users. All regular hirers have been required to complete their own activity risk assessments to complement some very stringent CoViD user conditions the committee published. There has been no pressure on any group to return and all regular hire slots have been left open for when they feel it is safe to continue.
The committee have been working with and receiving advice from both the Warwickshire Rural Community Council and Action with Communities in Rural England. Both bodies have provided professional advice as restrictions have changed on almost a weekly basis.
Under the new Tier 2 restrictions the committee is satisfied that the below activities can legally take place in the Village Hall;
- Indoor sport or exercise classes, provided people can avoid mixing in groups of more than 6 (exceptions to enable disability and youth sport and physical activity indoors)
- Youth groups, youth activities and playgroups provided they have full CoViD risk assessments and operate in groups of 6
- Education or training again in groups of 6.
The committee will continue to monitor local restrictions and wishes to thank both the Booking Clerk and Cleaner who have both worked extremely hard during these unusual times.

Earlier this year we supplied you all with a COVID-19 poster to highlight when a neighbour was in need of support.
A further poster, reminding everyone to keep following the Public Health messages, has now been produced and can be downloaded for use where appropriate. If you are aware of a neighbour who does not possess the necessary technology, please print the poster for them.
Our thanks for your help and please stay safe
Cheswick Green Residents Association
Albeit in its early stages, Coronavirus will have a major negative impact on us all and the manner in which we conduct our lives. In particular, senior citizens and the vulnerable will be at the greatest risk.
The Government guidance will see the elderly self-isolating and during this time, they will experience limited contact with the added risk of essential supplies running short.
In order to identify those in need of help, the Residents Association will supply all residents with two visuals for display in a prominent window. The green visual will signal that all is well and the red visual that support is needed.
Clearly, “face to face” conversations are not advised, but if you come across a red visual being displayed, please make every effort to contact the resident and offer them support.
We thank you for your anticipated help.
