Eras open and close as Seil Island Hall unlocks its doors and welcomes the community back.

The playgroup will be the first to meet up in the hall, while for the time being Seil Sound carries on rehearsals in the car park.

As the hall opens again in line with Covid regulations, any community groups wanting to begin meetings again are being asked to carry out their own risk assessments as well as clean up after themselves.

The situation will be kept under review by the hall committee who also announced the death this month of its much-respected trustee and fellow member John Gordon.

John had been associated with the then drill hall since arriving in Ellenabeich in the early 1970s first as its keeper then joining the managing committee.

As hall treasurer, he went on to play a major role in the developing and funding the new hall as it stands today in Ellenabeich.

‘He amassed an amazing archive and knowledge of the hall and the village which has been and will continue to be invaluable as we move forward. John’s counsel will be sorely missed. Our condolences go to Kathleen and family,’ said a spokesperson for the hall committee.

Also at the hall, dogs fouling the sports pitch and grounds is still a problem despite repeated calls for owners to clean up after their pets. The committee is now looking at fitting CCTV.
