St Leonards and St Ives Village Hall


As a result of the Government's decision on 15 June 2020 to reopen community centres and village halls we have now prepared our Village Hall to be Covid secure in line with Government and industry guidelines.

At present the range of permitted activities means that very few of our hirers are able to recommence their meetings just yet, including all dance or gym type activities and church groups. The Computer Café is hoping to reopen on 24 July – please email [email protected] for more information or to book a slot, giving us some basic information about your reason for booking.

We will be updating this page as soon as more freedoms are allowed and those of you who attend regular groups will be advised by the leaders when normal service will return.

For those of you who are able to return to your normal activities here in the hall, please be assured that we have taken every measure possible for your safety, and everyone else’s safety when using the premises. If you would like more information on this, we have a range of documents that you are welcome to download, they outline the measures and new procedures we have put in place.

The staff and committee look forward to welcoming you back in the near future so in the meantime, please stay safe and follow Government guidelines as a priority.

As one of the first village halls to be awarded Hallmark Accreditation in 2011 we truly are one of the best village halls in the Dorset and Hampshire area. Our popularity is evident from the large range of regular users and the number of private bookings that we are proud to host.
