Booking Clerks’ Report It was nice to see a diary print out with some bookings on again. They comprised two sessions of yoga a week, one Tai Chi and the return of short mat bowls. SV to ring Ty to check how he plans to carry out those sessions. The toddler group had been intending to return shortly but have decided to delay this until the New Year.The school has yet to let us have a complete list of the hours they used the Hall and RO and AO will raise an invoice once they have this information. The school did not use the dishwasher in the end due to the time it takes to initially warm up.  . There had been an enquiry from George Kite about a cider party event but it had been explained to him that this was currently against the Covid rules. Finally SV mentioned the WI are hoping to hold some social meetings for up to 6 people at a time, it was agreed this could work well and SV will contact Jan P to give her any information needed for their committee to make the decision.
