How to book the Village Hall – Simple 3 Step Process
1. Use the Village Hall Calendar to check if the date you want is free.
We receive bookings daily but the online calendar is updated weekly so it is essential to check with the Booking Clerk on the telephone that the date you require is available before sending in your booking form.
If the calendar does not display below click View Calendar
2. Next phone the Booking Clerk on 01477 533007 or 07460 835507 (9am to 8pm only please, and not on a Sunday) 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 the Booking Clerk (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 ParishCouncil@Goostrey.info
Please note if you want to alter the time of the booking, you need to confirm this with the Booking Clerk before putting the new time on the form, as any changes can have an impact on other hirers.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR HIRERS
Hirers Responsibilities – Full terms and conditions are on page 2 of the booking form, by signing the form and sending the booking form to us you are agreeing to the terms and conditions of hire.
If you are hiring the Village Hall for an organisation or for someone else and you will not be present at the event please ensure you notify us in advance with the name and contact details of the responsible person who will be present at the event.
You must put all of your requirements for Caretaker Services on the form, or notify them to the Booking Clerk more than two weeks prior to the event. This will ensure that we can make best efforts to fulfill your request in regard to these services.
Children’s Parties – Unfortunately due to a number of hirers not paying for children’s parties we now require payment in advance for any children’s party. Please ask the Booking Clerk for a quote when you make your provisional booking and pay when you send in your form (payment by cheque or in cash, do not send cash payments in the post, arrange to make payments in cash with the Booking Clerk).
School Kitchen – Our own kitchen has been improved and you should check with the Booking Clerk regarding the facilities you require before booking the School Kitchen.
Hirers are reminded that if they book the School Kitchen they are required to book Caretaker Services & Cleaning and complete a Risk Assessment Form which must be returned with their booking form to the Booking Clerk or by e-mail to ParishCouncil@Goostrey.info
