With the current situation regarding the COVID-19 virus pandemic, and the recent advice from the UK Government, the trustees of the Packington Memorial Hall have taken the decision to close the hall until further notice.
The trustees have not made this decision lightly, however slowing the spread of the virus, particularly to those vulnerable members of our community is our highest concern, and we believe that temporarily removing this communal area will help in this regard.
The hall will of course reopen as soon as the advice from the government changes.
In addition the AGM that was scheduled for tomorrow is also cancelled until further notice.
Today saw the annual Packington Horticultural show, culminating in the auction of produce from village gardeners. The produce was entered in the morning in both junior and adult categories, judged and then the amazing plants, vegetables, cakes and chutneys auctioned off in support of the society. A very successful village event held in the Memorial Hall.
The Packington Memorial Hall open evening was a complete success. We had exhibits from groups who regularly hold meetings and events in the hall, as well as other groups of interest in the village. For more details please see the pages coming soon to the PMHV.uk website highlighting the available groups.
FREE hot drink or glass of Prosecco.. Pop in for 5 minutes, or stay for longer.
Information on Village Groups, Clubs, Societies, events, and activities will be on display at Memorial Hall Venue 175 starting at 7pm on Friday. Plus you can MEET PEOPLE!
We haven’t staged an event of this size since 2009, when the new Hall had just been opened; back then the evening was a major success, with many village people commenting on how they “..just didn’t know..” about all the different activities and societies that take place in Packington.
Ten years on, there are many thriving village Groups that YOU might enjoy being part of, and which would welcome YOU to come and see what they are and what they do. This is YOUR chance to look around with zero commitment needed.
Also ten years on from 2009, we estimate one-third of the village population were not here in 2009. New to Packington? So were we, once. Please come along and say hello, or just observe. We’d LOVE to see you, and offer you that FREE drink!
