Booking the Hall
From time to time the Trustees review the Hall’s operational policies.  The following are the current conditions for booking the hall.

  • All bookings are made through the Booking Secretary, Sarah Chapman. She will issue all hirers with an entry code for one or other of the key safe boxes adjacent to the main door.
  • It will be a condition of hire that if a booking is cancelled by the hirer less than 48 hours before its due time the hiring charge must be paid in full. If there are exceptional circumstances, then the Booking Secretary has the discretion to waive all or part of the charge.
  • The Trustees on their part will use their best endeavours to ensure all advance bookings are honoured unless circumstances beyond their control dictate otherwise.
  • Hirers relying on the Hall for their own income purposes should indemnify themselves against its non-availability for any reason which may be beyond the Trustees’ control.
  • The minimum hiring charge for any occasion will be £10 for one hour thereafter increasing by £5 for each additional half hour or part thereof calculated from arrival to departure, which will include setting up and clearing away.
