Suffolk ACRE (Action with Communities in Rural England ) has been helping to interpret the guidelines published by government for village halls and community centres. They say “ The road map announced by the Prime Minister on 22nd February indicated that village and community halls will re-open after Easter, on 12th April. This has been contradicted by guidance issued on 25th February indicating that they can only open on 12th April for those activities already permitted under lockdown plus a small list of further activities. Halls are otherwise closed until 17th May.”
From 12th April Only certain activities are permitted. They do not include clubs, WIs, craft groups, or Parish Council meetings. • Food and alcohol can be served to those seated in outdoor settings, or as takeaways. * Supervised
children’s after school clubs are allowed, the emphasis being on “supervised”.
So the Community Cafe can start again with takeaways.
