Covid-19: new guidance you must read before making a booking

Our hall is available for hire subject to special conditions which we have adopted to reduce risks to users. 

We regret that we are not able to take bookings for parties.

We are now required by law to display the official NHS QR poster.  Anyone hiring our hall must

  • ensure that their attendees use their smartphone and NHS QR poster at the hall entrance to register their attendance, if possible;
    AND
  • keep a record of any who do not register using the hall’s NHS QR poster

You must read the following 5 documents in addition to the normal information about hiring.  Government advice may change and you should check that you have seen the most up-to-date versions immediately before your booking rather than relying on downloaded versions.  The version date is shown at the foot of each document.  The latest versions are dated 26 September 2020 except First Aid which is dated 11 August'

The deposit may be waived for regular bookings and village organisations. This and the balance of the hire fee must be paid two weeks before the booking date.

The Village Hall Committee holds licences for entertainment and the sale of alcohol at the hall. Obviously there are terms and conditions to ensure that events do not cause disturbance. If you are planning an event which needs the licences please speak with Jacqui when you talk to her about booking the hall. There is more about this in the conditions of hire.
