Kirkby Fleetham Village Hall
Artley Room unveiled by Fran Artley
On June 3, Fran Artley officially opened the Artley Room with the unveiling of a plaque.
Sheila Minto expressed the gratitude of the entire village at a ceremony which followed the AGM of the Village Hall Committee. Sheila emphasised the hard work and devotion of Graham and Fran Artley over many years. Graham, who died in December last year, took on the role of both Treasurer and Chairman and was also a stalwart of the Kirkby Fleetham Feast for many years.
Both Graham and Fran were determined to improve and develop the village hall and their achievements include adding double glazing, re- decoration and planning the extension. In 2013, Graham performed the opening of the new kitchen. Fran continues to provide much valued support for Village Hall and Feast activities.
If you have an idea for a group, whether or not you would be prepared to take a lead, please get in touch.
If you’d like to chat about any suggestions or developments, you can call Mike Dillon, Chair of the Village Hall Committee on 07713 131980 or speak to any Committee member.

Using the Village Hall Safely - Please Note
Anyone using the hall should use the hand sanitiser provided at the main entrance on entering and leaving.
Toilets may be used under strict sanitising conditions. Users should sanitise the toilet after use. (Sanitiser is provided).
Group leaders are responsible for sanitising equipment and surfaces before and after use. This includes door handles, window openers etc
Group leaders are responsible for maintaining a list of members attending classes and, in the case of illness inform Track and Trace and the Village Hall Secretary Linda Lodge on 748127.
Covid Risk Assessments are required to be completed by Group leaders
Social Distancing requirements will be relaxed. Social distancing was always intended to be relaxed in the final step of the government road map. Users and/or Group leaders can make it a personal choice if they wish to social distance.
The wearing of face masks will not be a requirement. We think the use of face masks should be a personal choice rather than mandatory.
