VICTORIA HALL 2022 BOOKINGS
The Hall is currently open, but subject to the latest Scottish Government 'Protective Guidance'. This is due to be reviewed from 17th January, when it is hoped that regular users will be able to return with confidence. In the meantime only the Youth Cafe is managing to meet these challenges, and continue with their activities. The new booking form is available under BOOK THE HALL (in the menu) and this includes an Event Risk Assessment form. Please note these booking conditions are subject to update as the Hall follows any Scottish Government 'Protective Guidance' that is announced.
If you wish to book the Hall for later in the year, please note that any booking can only be taken on a provisional basis, as we have to comply with any Scottish Government 'Protective Guidance', as it happens. We realise this can be very frustrating when planning an event, but we will keep you updated with any developments that may affect your proposed booking. This frustration is shared by the VHMC and only puts pressure on the Hall's ability to remain open. We can only continue for so long under these challenges and a scheduled review of our finances in March will determine whether we have to accept that maintaining Community venues, run by volunteers, is not viable. All such venues locally, and across the Highlands, are suffering from these similar challenges and have had to close but, please be assured that any closure of the Hall will always be a last resort.
Bookings restarted, with increased cleaning protocols, but please note are still only available to our existing regular Hall users and Cromarty residents.
