Village Centre Update – June 2021

corona virus imageIn line with the Government Road Map we have now been able to reopen the Centre and welcome back the majority of our exercise and dance groups.  Larger events such as film screenings, wedding receptions, parties etc. will resume later in the summer.

We have an enhanced cleaning programme to keep everyone as safe as possible, but it’s still essential that we all observe social distancing and wear face coverings when in the Centre. Hopefully it won’t be long before restrictions are a distant memory but in the meantime, don’t forget to wash those hands and let in plenty of fresh air. Let’s keep Dersingham healthy and safe!

Village Centre further update – January 2021

corona virus imageWith the announcement of Lockdown 3 it seems that the Centre may have to remain closed until at least mid-February. Sorry everyone, we will reopen as soon as Government regulations permit and if there are any updates we will post them here.

The vaccination programme is being rolled out in our area now, so hopefully there are better times to come.

Keep washing those hands and don’t forget to keep plenty of space between you and anyone you don’t actually live with. Let’s make Dersingham healthy and safe!

Village Centre Update – January 2021

corona virus imageSorry everybody, but once more we have had to close the Centre, as Norfolk is currently under Tier 4 restrictions. We will reopen as soon as Government regulations permit. Please note that, whether restrictions are lifted or not, we are postponing our January Community Friendship Lunch and our January Film Screening. These will take place in February, if possible.

Not the best of starts to the year, but we’re sure that it won’t be long before things will improve and we can welcome everybody back to the Centre. You may be interested to know that the Trustees offered the use of the Village Centre to the NHS as a vaccination venue but we were politely informed that they already have arrangements in place.

Keep washing those hands and don’t forget to keep plenty of space between you and anyone you don’t actually live with. Let’s make Dersingham healthy and safe!

Carol singers welcome Christmas

Christmas Greetings imageOur carol singalong on the evening of December 19th turned out to be a lovely event, complete with the ‘star of Bethlehem’ visible just above the horizon! The star is actually the great conjunction of the planets Jupiter and Saturn, which currently appear almost as one, all very exciting.

The music to accompany this spectacle of the night sky was provided by an excellent group of singers with keyboard accompaniment, organised by Village Centre Trustee David Collingham.  Naturally those assembled in the Centre car park were eager to add their own voices, so there were enthusiastic versions of many popular carols and Christmas songs. To fuel the singers there was mulled wine, mince pies and sausage rolls, provided by Centre volunteers.

All in all a great evening and we hope to repeat the event in a year’s time, when hopefully there will not have to be so much emphasis on social distancing.

Stay safe and well everybody. You can see some photos of the event below. Happy Christmas and a Healthy New Year!
