Changes due to Coronavirus

LOMCA, in line with Government advice, has suspended all of its activities until at least May 2021. 


Updates – see Groups/LOMCA


We are currently unable to run our formal programme due to COVID-19, but are in touch via email, post and Zoom meetings. New ladies are welcome to join in without commitment.
See WI blog for on-line activity. 


Memorial Hall
At the time of writing we are hoping that the Covid key dates will not be extended and we will be able to open the Hall from 17th May which is the earliest possible at the moment but we will keep our hirers informed.  Click here to see the pre-COVID activities which will hopefully be returning in the next few months.

The Hall's 100 club has normally run from March until December each year. This year we have decided to suspend the club due to the complications of contacting members under the Covid restrictions. We will review the situation from time to time and let people know when we decide to re start. In normal times the club is a significant help towards your Hall's running costs as well as providing a little boost for the winners so we hope when the time comes as many of you as possible will support us.

Sue Vaughan, chair of Hall Committee
