The Millennium Hall is registered with Somerset County Council’s Civil Contingencies Unit as a “Place of Safety”. This means that we may be asked to open up the Hall during a civil emergency so that the emergency services and volunteer organisations can provide assistance to the local or wider community. Whilst the current situation is certainly quite different in terms of the needs say of a local village evacuation due to flooding or gas explosion, or drivers being stranded on the A303 etc, the Civil Contingencies Unit is being very active in the co-ordination of local volunteer groups to provide help to the elderly and most vulnerable. We have offered the use of the Millennium Hall to the Civil Contingencies Unit for anything that may be required to support this current emergency.
