Smeeton Westerby Village Hall - Covid-19 update

25th June 2020 | Community

During ‘Lockdown’, Smeeton Westerby Village Hall, like all other halls, has had to close its doors to all its users. However, on a positive note, it has meant that with the building being empty for so long, we have been able to employ a decorator to come in and completely repaint the building both inside and out.

I am not sure how many of you are aware, but the Main Street Theatre Company of Great Glen started its life, (approximately 46 years ago!) as The Kibworth Drama Group based in the new drama studio of the then Kibworth High School. Recently on Facebook, Heather Wilson, one of our members, has been posting lots of old photos and programmes of shows that the group performed all those years ago.

Kibworth Village Hall - An Opportunity Taken

13th June 2020 | Community

Given the amount of planning and anticipation we had for future events, it was with great sadness that the Village Hall has had to close its doors due to Government advice. That marked the end of the free VE Day lunch we were planning to host for the over 75’s, along with several Community Cinema screenings. It has also meant the cancellation of the Pre-School, Dance classes, Martial arts, Yoga, Pilates, the Kibworth Chronicle lay-up and numerous other events and societies who use the Village Hall on a regular basis. We sincerely hope that everyone involved in these organisations is keeping safe during this difficult and challenging time.
