New Owners at the White Lion

The White Lion in Llynclys

Following confirmation that Admiral Taverns has sold the White Lion in Llynclys, new owners have said that they are committed to reopening as soon as possible.

Steve Sant, the new owner, has set up a new Facebook page for the pub and has posted: “Hello everyone, we’re the new owners of the Lion. We’d like to quickly address the rumours about our recent purchase of the pub. Please be assured we have absolutely no intention on knocking it down or developing housing. In fact as you’ll see, we’ll soon be starting a major investment in the pub to bring it back to life as soon as possible.”

June news from Pant Memorial Hall

Pant Memorial Hall in winter

The hall reopened to organised groups on May 17th – it is wonderful to see the building in use again, and we have had some lovely feedback from our hirers. Improvements continue; as well as the ever changing flower displays, we have hopefully seen off the woodworm for good with our new kitchen fire exit doors. These are smart maintenance-free UPVC, and modern clear windows to bring in even more light.

Following receipt of the restart grant, the committee have decided that we are in a position to ‘give back’ to the community by reducing hire fees to a flat £5 an hour. This discount will remain in place until December 31st 2021.

At time of writing our covid-19 precautions are still operating under roadmap ‘step 3’; things can change rapidly so please see our website or contact us for the latest information. The committee continues to monitor the situation to ensure that the hall remains ‘covid compliant’.

Roadmap ‘step 4’ may allow a full range of events including family gatherings, and may also allow further removal of restrictions and return of facilities – we are ready whatever happens.

Up to date information is always available on our website and social media feeds, and in a poster outside the building. The hall can be an excellent and affordable venue for all sorts of ventures, such as courses, education and entertainment. Feel free to contact us if you have any queries, we are here to help.

May update from Pant Memorial Hall

Pant Memorial Hall in winter

This is the latest in updates from Pant Memorial Hall, which has been closed during lockdown. As lockdown slowly eases, activities can start to return to the hall.

At time of writing we have just heard good news – roadmap step 3 is going ahead!

As a result the hall will reopen to organised activities from Monday May 17th. Our covid-19 precautions will still operate; these include social distancing measures and wearing face coverings unless exempt for medical reasons or doing an exempt activity. The kitchen remains out of use for now and we ask hirers to do some cleaning of touch points. We provide all the kit and give free time before and after the hire to do this.

We hope that ‘step 4’ will happen as planned from June 21st. This may allow a full range of events including family gatherings, and may also allow further removal of restrictions. Up to date information is always available on our website and social media feeds, and in a poster outside the building.

The hall can be an excellent and affordable venue for all sorts of ventures, such as courses, education and entertainment. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch to see how we can help.

We are delighted to welcome hirers back to our community building in its 99th year.

To contact us: bookings: email bookings@pantmemorialhall.org.uk or call 07913 565708.
You can also follow the hall on facebook @pantmemorialhall, on twitter @pantmemhall, or even leave us a note in the postbox.

The hall is run entirely by volunteers but we will get back to you as soon as we can.
