29th June 2020 - CORONAVIRUS UPDATE
As you are no doubt aware, the Government is easing restrictions and allowing more people to gather under new Covid19 guidelines. We, the managing committee, have studied the latest rules and taken advice from the WVHA & ACRE. After much consideration, taking account of all the restrictions and procedures that would have to be followed, we have decided that in the interests of safety for all it is best to keep the hall closed until September.
While we understand this will be disappointing for many, to reopen in July would require a considerable amount of preparation and ongoing supervision. As a Parish Hall we have a duty of care for all of our users many of whom are in the older age bracket. Therefore, it is felt that this is the most sensible course of action and most importantly avoids unnecessary risk at this early stage of the easing of restrictions.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.

The Memorial Hall was built in Idmiston Road, Porton to commemorate parishioners who gave their lives in two world wars. It opened in 1959.
Although the exterior is not an architectural gem, the interior is warm, light, clean and modern, with facilities for disabled people.
There is a good sized car-park. Volunteers manage the hall and we pay a cleaner and grass cutter.
There is a timetable for the Groups that use the hall, it is also well used by private hirers especially for childrens's birthday parties, wedding anniversaries and Christening celebrations.
Main Hall capacity:
With tables and chairs - 80
Theatre style seating (no tables) - 100
With minimal furniture - 120
Small Hall capacity:
With tables and chairs - 25
Theatre style seating (no tables) - 40 to 50
As confirmed by the Booking Secretary, the Parish Council meeting arrangment of tables in a horse shoe shape with chairs for 15 Councillors and 1 Clerk is acceptable, and allows for a further 20 to 25 chairs to be available for members of the public.
