COVID-19 HUB CLOSURE and HELP

Hi all – as we are all aware, Community Buildings like ours are necessarily temporarily closed due to the lock-down associated with the Covid-19 Pandemic – and it looks very much as if we are to remain closed for a good few weeks going forward. In the meanwhile our Chair of Trustees, Carol Tarrant, has established a ‘Mutual Aid’ WhatsApp group for the village of Ivinghoe. It is called ‘WhatsApp-ningin Ivinghoe’, and consists of 25 village volunteers around the village, who have all offered to keep an eye out for neighbours, particularly those who are shielding or are vulnerable in some way. Medicines and Food can be collected, and other help can be provided as required – Carol can be emailed on the Hub email address – ivinghoeoldschoolcommunityhub@btconnect.com – which is organised for her to access from her home. If you would like to be added to the ‘WhatsApp-ningin Ivinghoe’ WhatsApp group, please let Carol know, with your mobile phone number (which needs to have the WhatsApp app installed!) so that she can add you to the group.

Please keep safe, everyone – we will return to normal business of supporting our Community just as soon as advice from our Government allows, at all times keeping Health and Wellbeing paramount. We will keep updating this page as new information becomes available.

March 2020 Calendar!

Hi everyone – we do hope that you are enjoying our newly finished Hall floor – and needless to say, we are anxious that it remains looking good, so please do take care to preserve the good appearance!!

February 2020 Calendar!

Hi all! CuriosiTEA Rooms will remain fully open throughout February for lots of delicious coffee and good food, although the re-construction of the Main Hall Floor is going ahead from 8th February until 23rd – only the Hall will be closed for that period. Some Classes and Groups will go ahead as normal – Canasta and Simply Singing on 7th, Bridge Club on 3rd and 24th, Kickboxing on 3rd and 24th, Parish Council on 4th, Pilates on 6th, Leighton Tots Soft Play on 7th and 28th – I believe they are working with CuriosiTEA Rooms to run in the Café on 14th and 21st. Music Class will continue through February as the class can take place in the IT Room – as can other small groups if required! Bear with us and we should have a sparkly new Hall floor at the end of it all – CuriosiTEA Rooms are running their Pop-Up Restaurant on 28th – we will enjoy the new floor as well as delicious food!
