When hireing the Village Hall you wil be no longer aked to complete a Risk Assessment to submit to us. We still recomened you complete a risk assessment. This will enable you to determine what risks you may encounter during your hire and how you may mitigate those risks.


A risk assessment is an examination of a task, job or process that you carry out during your hire for the purpose of identifying the significant hazards, the risk of someone being harmed and deciding what further control measures you must take to reduce the risk to an acceptable level.

You will be provided with a copy of the Risk Assessment for Shipton Bellinger Village Centre.

Consider the following

  • Identifying the significant hazards that are present (a hazard is something that has the potential to cause someone harm or ill health).
  • Deciding if what you have already done reduces the risk of someone being harmed to an acceptable level, and if not;
  • Deciding what further control measures you must take to reduce the risk to an acceptable level.


Things to consider when hiring the village centre

  1. Is your activity within the current government guidelines? These are being regularly updated.
  2. Consider the activity you plan for your group in the village hall, numbers of people, can you maintain social distancing, taking special note if any of your attendees are over 70 years of age. Their clinical vulnerability should be considered. Will you be using any equipment.
  3. Cleanliness is key in protecting against Covid-19.  Comsider how you may clean any equipment you use.
  4. Your risk assessment should consider the areas of the hall you may use, including chairs and tables and any equipment you may use.
  5. Are there likely to be any ‘pinch points’ where keeping social distancing may be difficult, ie accessing storage areas.
  6. Kitchens are obviously a major area of risk.. Bringing your own food and drink and not use the kitchen removes a big area of risk. If you plan to use the kitchen then this needs to be considered in your risk assessment.


Risks can be managed by hirers through ventilation, opening doors and windows. Encouraging use of face coverings in confined places, regular hand washing or hand sanitiser and cleaning frequently used surfaces.
