  1. The hall must not be left unattended during a booked period.
  2. As much notice as possible on either side must be given to cancel a booking.
  3. The hall is run on a voluntary basis and we have no caretaker.  We rely on the person whose signature is on the booking form to arrange tidying up afterwards, to be responsible for the care of the hall and to maintain good behaviour inside and outside.
  4. All exits must be kept clear of obstructions at all times and the position of fire-fighting equipment and first-aid equipment noted.
  5. Any mishaps or breakages should be reported and payment must be made for any damage.
  6. No posters or other items to be stuck on the walls or the curtain of the hall.
  7. No smoking is allowed in any part of the building.
  8. No dances, discos, bouncy castles or outdoor games are permitted in the hall and all events are to finish by 10.30 pm.  Excessive noise must be avoided bearing in mind the close proximity of the Alms Houses and the Church.
  9. There is a small car park at the south end of the hall.  This is for use by both the users of the hall and the Church.  Turn into School Lane and then turn right to the car park just before the bridge.

  11. The hall is not licensed for the sale of alcohol.  Advice about obtaining a license is given below.

Obtaining a license to consume alcohol.

With the implementation of the Licensing Act 2003 alcohol cannot be sold or supplied free at any event in the church Hall without a licence.  It cannot be included in the price of the ticket unless a licence is obtained.  Individuals may bring their own drinks for their own consumption without a licence.  The appropriate licence must be obtained and displayed in the hall at the event.

From November 2005 the licensing authority is Derbyshire District Council. For further information contact the Licensing and Administration Manager:   telephone: 01629 761374.

N.B  We have no caretaker therefore the setting up of the hall for an event and putting away afterwards is the responsibility of the hirers and must be done inside the hire period.
