Parish Hall Re-opening

The Trustees of Warcop Parish Hall have looked at the government’s four-stage “roadmap” out of Covid-19 restrictions and have decided that there will be a gradual re-opening of activities starting the week beginning the 17th May. The current building work should be completed by then.

This is likely to include:

Mondays Table Tennis 6:30 – 8:00pm

Tuesdays Post Office 2:00 – 3:00pm

Tuesdays Shappy Wheels (car park) 4:30 – 7:00pm

Tuesdays Drama Group 6:30 – 8:30pm

Wednesdays Circuits 5:30 – 6:30pm (School Field initially.)

Wednesdays Taekwondo 5:00 – 8:00pm

All of the above will continue to operate according to government Covid restrictions and their sport’s governing body’s regulations, including wearing of face masks, hand sanitising, reduced group sizes and social distancing.

More activities and events will start after the 21st June when all national restrictions will be removed, if the government’s roadmap and dates do not change, including some other activities such as Extend Exercise, Clubbercise and Bat and Chat. As activities and events are confirmed they will appear on the Parish Hall Calendar of Events elsewhere on this website. Events – Warcop Website

The Hall Events Committee will meet soon to plan a programme of events for the rest of the year and we intend to re-start monthly Saturday morning Coffee Mornings, the Thursday Foyer Cafe and monthly Soup and Pud lunches. We will also be able to hire out the hall for events, parties and so on.

As a welcome back, we plan to hold a FREE Coffee Morning as soon as possible with lots of goodies available as we are able to meet together again. We look forward to seeing all our regular and new users in the coming weeks and months.

Parish Hall Improvements

Warcop Parish Hall Trustees have successfully applied for a series of grants which will enable it to improve the facilities at the hall and to enhance its provision. The Trustees are grateful to the Lottery, Eden District Council’s Community Fund, ACRE’s Village Hall Improvement Grant and Warcop Parish Council for their support.

  1. The main work will involve an extension to the storage provision to create two more storerooms which had to be omitted when the hall was originally built to reduce costs. There will be one larger store and a smaller store room with racked shelving for hall users to store smaller items. This extension will allow the hall to store its existing equipment more effectively and also allow for the storage of new equipment for any new activities or groups.
  2. The grants also allow for improved access to the building by replacing the rather heavy front doors with automatic ones, thus enabling those with mobility problems or some elderly users to access the hall much more easily and safely.
  3. A new electronic projection screen and a new projector will be installed above the new storerooms for those hirers needing to use projection facilities.

The work, to be carried out by local contractor Matt Pietruszewski, is expected to start on the 8th March and take about 8 weeks. Please note that during this work, the side path nearest to the school will be blocked off to create a compound for the construction work. Access to and from school will be along the front of the hall and down the path alongside the hall driveway. We apologise for any inconvenience this might cause.

Warcop Parish Hall Covid-19 Closure

The trustees of Warcop Parish Hall met on the 2nd December 2020 and discussed the implications of Cumbria being in Tier 2 following lockdown, and also taking into account the latest government guidance for community halls. Trustees took the decision to remain closed for the moment but will review the situation in January taking into account the tier that Cumbria will be in at that time and any further guidance for community halls.

We are sorry for the inconvenience caused to our many regular users and hirers but we feel that re-opening at this stage would be likely to increase the risk of infection if we were to re-start classes and events.

We really hope that things will look better in 2021 and mass vaccination will be rolled out and we can start to offer all the many activities, classes and events that we’ve all missed so much.

In the meantime, the weekly Post Office continues at the Hall on Tuesdays from 2-3 pm. The Shappy Wheels Fish & Chips van will continue in the car park every Tuesday from 4:30 -7:00pm. The primary school can continue to use the hall for occasional PE lessons.

Shap Chippy Van Starts Tuesday 13th October!

Shap Chippy are planning to start a weekly fish & chip service from their mobile van which will be sited at Warcop Parish Hall car park every TUESDAY evening from 4:30 -7 pm. There will be a pre-booking system and it is hoped that the new scheme will start on the 13th October. This will be a great boost for everyone after the lockdown period and we expect residents will help collect meals for neighbours who can’t drive so that they don’t miss out!

Make sure that you spread the word!

Please check here for further details when we receive them and also look out for leaflets and posters.

Sign up for Parish Information!

Warcop Parish Council is trying to set up a parish-wide mailing list to enable it to send relevant information to the 220 households that make up the parish in Bleatarn, Sandford, Warcop and part of Coupland Beck. If you click on any page after the Home Page on our website, you will see a simple sign-up form. You can choose how to receive information and you can opt out whenever you like.

The idea is to tell you about the things the Parish Council is working on as well as telling you about its meetings and the minutes. We will also seek your opinion on issues from time to time – for example, we are currently meeting with Highways England to try and persuade them to create a northerly route for the dualled A66 that takes it over MOD land and further away from Warcop and nearby properties.

We would also like to tell you about events, classes or activities at the Parish Hall, as well as any developments the trustees are working on. For example, they have recently been successful in securing funding to build an extension to our store rooms as we do not have enough space, which is due to the hall’s success.

The whole point is to keep you – the nearly 600 residents of our parish – as fully up to date as possible, so that you feel informed and involved in our community.

Please sign up as soon as possible, so that we can build up a really good number of contacts, then we will begin to send out occasional emails.

Thank you,

David Keetley

Chair, Warcop Parish Council
