General Info about the Village Hall
SAFETY AND FIRE
The village hall has a No Smoking Policy.
In the event of a fire, the village hall should be evacuated in an orderly manner using the appropriate exits, and the Fire Brigade called by dialling 999. The exact location of the nearest telephone, fire exits and fire extinguishers must be noted before the village hall is occupied and the manner of opening Fire Doors should be made known to your guests.
ACCIDENTS AND FIRST AID
The village hall’s accident record book is kept in the Kitchen and should be filled out in the event of an accident in the hall. A first aid box is located in the kitchen.
HEATING, LIGHTING AND POWER
The heating controls are located in the main hall. Please let the booking secretary know if you need the village hall to be particularly warm or cold. Do not adjust the heating thermostat as this will result in the village hall being too cold or hot for subsequent users. If you have booked during the winter, spring or autumn, the heating will be programmed to come on and go off when appropriate. There is an ‘over-ride’ facility to extend the heating for an hour at a time (details next to the heating controls). Please do not touch the heating controls other than to facilitate the over-ride if you need to. There are various power sockets located around the hall and small hall.
The village hall has no telephone and the nearest one is located outside the Izaak Walton public house in the High Street. So you are advised to bring a fully charged mobile telephone for use in case of emergency.
The village hall car park will accommodate approximately 25 cars if they are parked sensibly. There is more parking in the free village car park opposite which holds approximately 20 cars.
CONSIDERATION FOR LOCAL RESIDENTS
Please ask your guests to leave quietly at the close of your event. Car doors banging and loud talk in the car park is disturbing to local residents.
POSTERS AND DECORATIONS
Please do not use drawing pins or sellotape on the walls or other surfaces, use blu-tack if you need to put up notices or decorations. Do not fix decorations near light fittings or heaters. Please remove all decorations carefully at the end of hire period.
Please report any faults or damage to the booking secretary or caretaker as soon as possible so that they can be rectified quickly. The Village Hall Committee welcomes comments or observations that you may have about your hire of the village hall.
