Hire Terms & Conditions

Setting up and dismantling is the responsibility of the hirer.

The grounds must be left in the same state as when they were hired.

The Society does not have a rubbish collection and so the hirer is responsible for rubbish removal. There are numerous drums made available for your use, and these must be emptied within 3 days of the completion of your event for hygiene reasons. The Society can arrange a contractor for this purpose at your cost.

Major events could be charged for power if the anticipated usage is high.

Toilet blocks will be cleaned and stocked beforehand. If large numbers are expected, then the cleaning and restocking of paper etc. during the event is the hirer’s responsibility, or the Society can arrange a contractor at your cost.

The Society sometimes negotiates on a fee for multiple days hiring, or even an annual fee for regular users.
