Guidelines for Hirers

Thank you for hiring the village hall.  To keep the premises nice for all users there are certain requests from the management committee as follows:

Please:

  • To adjust the central heating, use the thermostatic control, which is in the main hall, to the left of the door into the lobby (200 is usually enough). In case of problems phone one of the numbers below.
  • On leaving, follow the heating instructions by the thermostat.
  • If you wish to decorate for parties etc Whitetac should be used as no use of Sellotape or drawing pins is acceptable other than on notice boards.
  • Return all tables to the rear storage room leaving them stacked as directed.
    PLEASE DO NOT FORCE TO CLOSE –  
    Use the stated way as on back of tables.
  • Stack all chairs with no more than seven to any stack for safety.
  • Brush the hall before leaving.
  • Leave the kitchen, including the sink, clean and place all rubbish in the wheeliebin outside the hall or take it home if the bin is full.
  • Remember to turn off all lights on departure – the toilet block lobby included – toilets are time controlled.
  • Check all taps are turned off.
  • No food or drinks should be stored on the premises unless agreed with the committee and then only in secure containers i.e. Tupperware.
  • Allow for preparation and clearing in your hiring period.
  • Return the key to 5 Welham Road with payment — cheques to Great Bowden Village Hall.

IF ANY ITEMS ARE BROKEN, PLEASE LET US KNOW—OTHER HIRERS ARE INCONVENIENCED IF THERE ARE SHORTAGES

Please note that there is no license to sell alcohol.  If you wish to do so you must arrange the appropriate authority with Harborough District Council and bring it when collecting the keys—donations are the same as sales.

Finally, could you please ask your guests to park carefully and not on the grass of the village greens or on the footpath outside the village hall and respect our neighbours.
 

Thank you for reading this list.  We hope you find the hall to your liking.
