We are sorry to say that in order to comply with the latest government guidance, we are now closing the hall to non-essential activities again. However, the hall will remain open to activities such as childcare and support groups (details here). We look forward to welcoming everyone back as soon as we safely can. Happy New Year!
Seacourt Hall Management Committee wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
We also wanted to thank you all for the wonderful support and flexibility you’ve given us throughout the year.
Here’s hoping that 2021 will be slightly less chaotic. Cheers!
From 2nd December, we look forward to welcoming back our ever patient hall users! And we have good news for you…we now have a WiFi connection within the hall. You will find details of the username and password on the hall noticeboard. All users are reminded to adhere to all social distancing and covid related guidance.
We are sorry to say that in order to comply with the latest government guidance, we are now closing the hall to non-essential activities again. However, the hall will remain open to activities such as childcare and support groups (details here). We appreciate how frustrating this is – and we really can’t wait to welcome everyone back again. Stay well, stay safe and we will see you soon!
We are very pleased to tell you that Mace have come to an agreement with the Vale council to provide free parking Monday – Sunday from 18.00 till midnight.
This free parking covers the car park behind the hall, the front of Elms Parade, and the Westminster Way car park. As these car parks also have two hours free parking as standard this means free parking from 4pm to midnight.
This will be helpful for our many visitors to evening events and classes at Seacourt Hall as well as the shopping area as a whole!

After 5 long months of being closed, Seacourt Hall Management Committee is delighted to announce that our doors are now open again and we are beginning to welcome back users.
We are doing everything we can to make sure we are protecting our visitors and staff members and we will continue to work on ensuring that the hall is safe for everyone. We have completed a full risk assessment prior to reopening the hall – and a written a ‘Covid User guide’ ensuring all guidance and compliance is met. The hall had a deep clean before reopening and we have increased our regular cleaning plan.
We reopened on Monday 14th September and have welcomed back a few groups and activities already. We have had some really positive feedback so far and it has been wonderful to see the hall alive with sound, light and movement. Understandably, some of our regular groups are not yet ready to return and some types of use we cannot admit at the moment so it will take a while to get things back to ‘normal’. We cannot wait to welcome EVERYONE back.

We were excited to move into the new permanent Seacourt Hall at 3 Church Way in January 2020. We had our official Open Day on Saturday 25th January.
How are we helping?
We are pleased that while Seacourt Hall is unable to be used for our usual social gatherings during the lockdown we have come to an arrangement with the Botley Community Fridge to use the space for storage and packing of essential food parcels. Thank you to all the Fridge volunteers who continue to provide this service, changing and adapting to new regulations and the evolving situation to provide this service that is even more important than ever.
Clive was a good friend and supporter of Seacourt Hall and he will be sorely missed in the community. Our thoughts are with his family.
