Terms & Conditions

CONDITIONS OF HIRE & INFORMATION

 

The Trustees serve in a voluntary capacity, which enables hire charges  for the village hall to be kept to a minimum.   We therefore rely on the full co-operation of  all users  in respecting these conditions

1. Male, female and wheelchair accessible toilets are available on the ground floor. The male toilets are also accessible from the Ditton Football and Social Club. 

2. The kitchens are available for hirers to use at no extra charge. Please ensure equipment and utensils are left clean and put away.

3. There is no telephone at the hall.  Hirers are advised to bring their own mobile phones.

4. There are basic first aid kits in each kitchen.  However, hirers are advised to bring their own.  Accident books are in both kitchens for recording incidents.
