Victoria Hall Update
Unfortunately the Victoria Hall remains closed. Government guidelines do not yet allow any live events of Music, Drama or Dancing. These are the "mainstay" events. Also it is really difficult with Social Distancing. At 2 meters apart capacity will be reduced to no more than 30 in the Main Hall and at this number most events are not viable.
We continue to look at options & but until the Government lift restrictions, we will remain closed.
It is a really difficult situation. With the help of the Victoria Hall Support Group, the number of events & functions in the hall was on the increase & there was a real buzz about the place
However, we will not be beaten - we will re-open & with everyone's help we will get back to some resemblance of normality!!
The kitchen refurbishment project is still on-going. Our grant applications were declined as the grant providers are now only concentrating on projects related to COVID issues. Whilst this is understandable we are really disappointed.
However, with the proceeds from events held by VHSG before "Lockdown" the project is half way there. The general public continue to be very generous and we have received several donations towards the kitchen project & if these continue, there is every possibility that we could get the project started before the end of the year.
If you would like to contribute towards the cost of the refurbishment, please send your cheque (payable to: Victoria Hall Support Group) to: Kitchen Project, Victoria Hall, Main Street Grange-over-Sands, LA11 6DP. All donations will be gratefully received.
Best wishes to you all & keep safe. I hope to see you all in the Victoria Hall in the not too distant future.
