Liston Hall reopens on Monday April 12th 2021
only for very limited activities
All supervised indoor children’s activities are permitted, including dance classes, musical activities, cubs, scouts, brownies.
Parent and child groups are permitted, e.g. parent and toddlers, with up to 15 attending plus under-fives.
Sales are permitted in the Hall. Stalls/tables must be at least 2 metres apart and positioned around the wall, not in the middle of the hall. The permitted maximum of 50 people at any one time includes all organisers and stall holders. One-way systems for visitors must be enforced and distance maintained between stall holders and visitors.
Unless the individual has a valid official exemption, anyone visiting Liston Hall for any reason must wear a face covering which must be kept on at all times, except when participating in an exempt event type. The face covering must cover the nose and mouth; a visor alone is not sufficient.
For all types of event, at least 2 metres (minimum 1 metre if all involved are wearing face coverings) must be maintained between household groups.
On condition that the rules about facemasks and household distancing are observed at all times, the maximum permitted capacity for each room is:
Main Hall - 50 people
Garden Room - 15 people
Thames Room - 15 people
Additional hygiene measures (sanitiser etc) must be followed and ventilation maximised.
MCA's Covid-related booking conditions & guidelines are mandatory for all hirers and for every event and will continue to apply until at least mid-June. This is in addition to the normal Booking Conditions.
Your security deposit may be forfeit if any breaches of these or other conditions occur.
Each booking will be assessed to ensure that it will be conducted in a way that complies with the law and current guidelines. The Association reserves the right to refuse any booking that is or might be in contravention of the conditions.
Please note - Liston Hall’s cancellation penalties as stated in the normal Booking Conditions will be reintroduced from April 12th. If the rules change and MCA have to cancel paid-for bookings, refunds will be given.
The full guidance from Community Impact Bucks can be seen here: https://acre.org.uk/cms/resources/press-releases/coronavirus-update-for-village-community-halls-2.3.21-v2.pdf.
Please contact the office if you have any questions or concerns.
Marlow Community Association established Liston Hall as a Covid-secure venue at the start of the pandemic and continues to work hard to maintain that status. In addition to our normal Booking Conditions, we have Covid-related Conditions & Guidelines which are mandatory for every event. These will continue to be strictly applied until at least mid-June and need to be agreed to and signed by all hirers.
We also have the Statement of Permitted Use, based on current government regulations and guidance from Community Impact Bucks and reproduced here. It is updated from time to time as the situation changes and takes precedence over other conditions if contradictions occur. Please follow the links to download the documents.
Specific guidance is given throughout the site in red, describing the changes that Covid has made to our normal way of working, as well as necessary behaviour and precautions to protect all hirers and staff and to ensure the building remains Covid-safe.
