Following latest news that furlough will continue until the end of September, we are sure that many people will still feel more confident about visiting such enclosed spaces like our beautiful cinema when we are 100% clear of the spread of Covid-19 and that management & volunteers are available for work. Please also take into account that it’s going to take time for the film industry to fully recover from the interruption caused by this awful pandemic. Please continue to check out the website and Facebook pages and feel assured that Cross Hands Public Hall & Cinema will be up and running, with business as usual, once safe to do so.
Thank you, as always, to everyone who supports the Hall
Our beautiful hall remains closed for the foreseeable future due to the uncertainty of the continued spread of Covid-19. As we all know, the Welsh government continues to advise venues like Cross Hands Public Hall on when it is safe to open and when it is required to close. These are uncertain times and remaining closed is our safest and most beneficial option. As an example, if we went out and purchased hundreds of pounds of shop stock, only to be shut down again, the financial waste and loss would be awful.
As a venue that encourages people to sit together, again this is simply not feasible in our current climate of social distancing. We all need to be 100% confident that we are safe, and that simply is not attainable at the moment.
We are also aware that the film industry as a whole has been chronically affected. Even if we were able to show films, we would potentially be only looking at much older ones, rather than the chance to show new releases. They are simply not happening at the moment.
To conclude, considering everything above, we have decided our best course of action is to wait patiently; to accept that only time and trusting that others will stick to the rules is the only way to rid ourselves of this crisis and that our lovely little hall and cinema can begin looking at opening, with confidence, sometime in the new year of 2021.
In the meantime, we thank you for your continued patience and support and to please ‘stay safe’.
The committee of Cross Hands Public Hall & Cinema. (We’ll) be right here!
