Guidance and Information for Village Halls

Changes on 5 June

The Borders moved into Protection Level 1 on 5 June. What this means for village halls is summarised in the latest update (below) “Reopening Village Halls”.

 Protection Level 1: Indoor Activities and Gatherings Briefing

Updated guidance is available below.

We will update this page again as soon as we have more information.

Please note: Collecting contact details

Test and Protect guidance says it is the premises that collects the contact details from the public (including any staff or volunteers present) attending a particular event or venue. In addition, the specific guidance for community centres and village halls says it should be the community centre management and the service manager who collect the data.—guidance

The official guidance makes clear that an individual is not obliged to provide contact details. If this happens, the venue (including a village hall) can decide whether or not to allow admittance. Therefore, a hall can refuse to admit any individual or even group who does not provide contact details.

If you have any enquiries, please contact us using the form below.
