Yay! At last light at the end of this very long tunnel! The sun is shinning and hopefully we can open our doors after the 12th April (with restrictions) but at least with hope that in May most of our classes and some events can start to take place and then in June we are FREE! We appreciate that everything is being been cautiously done and we will follow all the guidelines and rules that we have to but we have to be optimistic! If you would like to provisionally book the Hall or Pavilion for an event from June onwards or make an enquiry please do get in touch.
We continue to take our guidance from: https://www.wrccrural.org.uk/reopeningvillagehalls/
We continue to keep up with maintenance so that when we can open, we are ready for you. Katie Haycock continues to work with the Parish Council on the Play Area upgrade. You may have noticed that the two picnic benches have gone, these were rotten and dangerous but hopefully will be replaced soon. Kate hopes to organise some Car Boots to help with fund raising as soon as we are able so look out for these dates and save your lockdown clear-out goodies for these! Also don’t forget to use your membership card when you shop at Co-op so that the Play area benefits, we will be very grateful. Before you shop and to make sure Brailes gets your support log on to https://membership.coop.co.uk/causes/52509 and select Brailes Play Area as the cause to benefit. It won’t cost you anything just a moment to log on. Thank you.
A bit of sad news is that Brailes W.I. is unfortunately closing. ☹. After nearly 100 years this is a big loss to the Village and to the Hall as they have been wonderful generous supporters of so many events and people in the Village. The Village Hall Committee will certainly miss their monthly presence and support at the Hall but it is hoped that the vivacious and resourceful ladies of the Village will continue to put on events in the Community in their own right … we look forward to finding out what they have in store … hold on to your Hats!

Take care and stay safe.
