Halberton Village Hall Trustees feel it is the duty of all hirers and visitors to take care of themselves and others who may be affected by their activities and to co-operate with the Trustees in keeping the premises, including the grounds, safe and healthy.
The Trustees recognise our social responsibility to protect the environment and maximise energy efficiency.. It is the policy of the Trustees to install and maintain energy saving devices to reduce not only fuel bills but also the Village Hall's impact on climate change.
The Trustees are committed to safeguarding and avoiding risk to children and vulnerable persons who participate in activities on the Village Hall premises.
Hirers will be informed that they are wholly responsible to ensure that any activities for children and vulnerable persons comply with all current legislation with special regard to supervision and chaperones.
Bookings for teenage parties are not encouraged and will only be considered from a request from a parent or guardian. Parents or guardians must attend a meeting with officials of the management committee prior to any acceptance of a booking. A deposit of £250 is required which is returnable minus any breakages or damages resulting from the event.
In consideration of the Hire Fee as contracted, the Trustees agree to permit the Hirer to use the Premises for the Function and for the Period(s) agreed. The Hiring Agreement includes the Conditions set out below.
