Despite the hall being closed due to Covid-19 restrictions, we are keeping busy. The Tyninghame Village Hall and Community Committee has made a commitment to make improvements to the village hall. For further information on the refurbishments please see here.
We hope to be able to open up the hall again from 9 May 2021 when the refurbishments should be completed and restrictions have eased.
We would like to reassure all our future users that we take your safety very seriously. We have put in place a number of new hygiene and safety measures in the Hall to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. We ask all those hiring and using the Hall to observe the current guidance on numbers attending Hall events, social distancing measures, the wearing of face-masks, etc. Documents relating to hire of the Hall can be found on the Booking Terms and Conditions page.

In February 2021 we insulated the central roof structure. Prior to this work, we commissioned a Bat Survey to find out if and where we had bats roosting in the Hall and what measures would be needed to protect them. You can read the full report here.
Covid restrictions prevented us from hosting our usual Burns Night supper in the hall. Instead we decorated the village bus shelter in true tartan style.
Villagers were invited to hang their favourite Burns quotes or art on the tartan backdrop and children were encouraged to create a piece of art that represents a favourite Burns poem. We also put out a quiz to celebrate the life and work of Rabbie Burns. Anyone could pick up a copy and have a go. Here are the answers.
