Frequently Asked Questions

Below you will find the answers to many questions you may have on your mind, that you have not been able to find the answer to in the documents. If the answer is still not shown, please email the booking clerk

1Are there any events that are unable to take place?
We are unable to accept bookings for teenage/adult parties from outside the village and wrestling due to licensing laws.
2Are we able to use a Bouncy Castle inside the hall?
Unfortunately, not inside the hall. There is, however, lots of space on the grass outside the hall but within the grounds. When using the equipment you will need to confirm that the person you are hiring from holds insurance and we will require a risk assessment to be submitted to the booking clerk.
3Can we access the hall earlier than booked to set up and bring in alcohol?
If the hall is available we are able to let you have early access. We advise you to pre book and include the time for setting up and clearing away in your booked hours. This will enable subsequent hours to be made available to other hirers. Please make any suppliers aware of your booked times.
4I am running a charity event is there any discount or chance I can have the hall for free?
We are sorry to say we are unable to offer the hall for free use as we are a charity ourselves and have high overheads to pay, however the management committee will consider any application for a discounted hire fee for a charity event at the next committee meeting. It is recommended you make your written application as early as possible and send it to the booking clerk (address will be given on application) or via email to the address above.
5How many tables, chairs and crockery do you have and is it included in the hire fee?
Yes all the items mentioned above are included in the hire fee and there is a limited amount of crockery in the kitchen. We are happy to arrange a viewing for you to inspect that it is suitable for your needs. There are 10 large tables (approx. 6ft by 3ft), 14 small tables (approx. 3ft by 3ft) and approximately 90 chairs, with about 30 wooden folding ones which are suitable for use outside.
6What about with alcohol, and running a bar at the hall?
You have a number of options:- 1, You can supply the alcohol and give it away to your guests for free 2, You can ask the guests to bring their own alcohol for their own consumption 3, You can apply for a Temporary Events Notice Licence and this will enable you to sell alcohol yourself or you can employ the services of a landlord who may apply on your behalf and run the bar for you.
7Can we have a BBQ at the Hall?
BBQ and Hog Roasts are welcomed, We just ask you to use them outdoors, keep them clear of the hall and any trees, provide a secure area so children cannot come into contact with the hot BBQ or cooker and provide full supervision. Please ensure that all food preparation regulations are complied with. You will also need to submit a risk assessment for our insurance purposes.
