Village Hall Closure

The Leigh Village Hall is closed from midday today, 20/03/20  for 10 weeks or the end of May.

In line with Government directives we will revue the situation at that time or earlier if necessary.

The committee apologise for any inconvenience. These are harsh measures but we live in an unprecedented time.


Due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation, all social events within the village have been cancelled.

I have set up a support page which will include all of the latest news for the village regarding Covid-19

Obviously there are going to be some people in need of help over the next weeks and months and we have therefore set up a support network. If you need help, or are able to offer help then please have a look here

The support number is 07942 646052
or email


Volunteers needed

We are setting up a Covid-19 support group. If you are able to help collect shopping or prescriptions etc then please phone 07942 646052  or email and leave your details.

The support group will be using whatsapp to co-ordinate responses, so you will need a phone which supports whatsapp

We are looking for as many people as possible to join the group as circumstances will be changing daily. Many hands make light work.
