Goostrey Village Hall
Welcome to the Goostrey Village Hall page.
Our Village Hall is managed by Goostrey Parish Council, and has a team of dedicated staff headed up by our Village Hall Supervisor, Janet Keates.
Janet manages all aspects of the day to day running of the Village Hall including bookings, caretaker services, maintenance and keeps all the rooms to a very high standard of cleanliness. She is assisted by Sharon Jones our Parish Clerk, who manages the invoices and payments for all bookings.

1. Use the Village Hall Calendar to check if the date you want is free.
We receive bookings daily and the online calendar is updated when we receive a booking. However, you may want to check with us on the telephone that the date you require is available before sending in your booking form.
2. Next email/phone our Village Hall Supervisor, Janet Keates on email@example.com /phone 07460 830382 to make a provisional booking.
Please note that provisional bookings are only held for 14 days, if we do not receive a completed application form within that time your booking will be cancelled.
3. Print off and complete a booking form and return it to us at the Village Hall (within 14 days of making the provisional booking), remembering to keep a copy for yourself. Or you can scan your form and send it by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note if you want to alter the time of the booking, you need to confirm this with the Janet before putting the new time on the form, as any changes can have an impact on other hirers.
