Barn closed due to coronavirus outbreak

March 17, 2020

All indoor events and activities at the Barn have been suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak. The decision was taken reluctantly by the charity's trustees following government advice that people should avoid crowded places and public gatherings including small group meetings. The closure is effective from Wednesday, March 18 and covers activities such as the community gym, pilates, the snooker club, rural cinema and U3A as well as private functions such as weddings or parties. The trustees will continue to monitor official advice on the outbreak and will review the closure decision on April 20th. It is hoped that the Hickling Village Show will be able to go ahead as scheduled on July 26th, and that everyone will make the most of the closure period to produce some truly memorable entries.

In an earlier response to the outbreak, all planned fundraising events before the Village Show were cancelled including the Music Lounge in April and the Village Fair and Dog Show in June. The Race Night which was to have taken place on March 28 was postponed until September 12. The list of events is now as follows:

July 26:         Village Show

Aug 16:          Village Tea Party

Sep 12:          Race Night (postponed from March 28)

Oct 10:          Oktoberfest

Nov 01:          Fireworks

Nov 21:          Music Lounge

Nov 28:          Hickling School Christmas Fair

Dec 11:           Brass Band evening

Dec 18:          Christmas film matinee
