Booking the Hall
We hire the hall and its facilities to people and organisations within the village and the wider district. There are a number of possible combinations of rooms, including hiring the whole hall for exclusive use.
There are no restrictions on the type of groups who may use the hall but all bookings are at the discretion of the management committee. Unfortunately we are unable to take bookings for teenage parties.
Your booking is subject to our terms and conditions. You must adhere to the licensing conditions for the hall which are displayed inside. These cover safety, hours of use and alcohol licensing; we will supply you with a copy.
We have an unusually flexible charging policy. Instead of charging by 3 or 4 hour sessions, you can book any room or combination of rooms by the hour (or half hour after the first hour), and we charge a lower rate for your preparation and clearing-up time before and after your event. So you pay for exactly what you need. We can arrange a licence for you to run your own bar (and you keep the profits).
Please note that it is highly likely that other hirers will be using the hall immediately before or after you, so you need to be sure that the arrival and departure times on your booking form are accurate and that you can vacate the hall complex promptly.
Except by prior arrangement, the hirer needs to collect the keys from the Post Office in the village shop before the event and return the keys there afterwards. The shop and Post Office counter is normally open from 7am to 9pm every day – very convenient.

Once you have provisionally booked the Hall with Michael, you will need to print off the Booking Form and return to Michael at the above address within 7 days to secure your booking.
(We do not have an on-line booking system because we have very many possible combinations of facilities, often need to discuss these with you to help you get the best combination, and need to be sure that potential noise, car parking and other matters are dealt with fully.)
