Covid Policy for Users


The safety and welfare of all users of our hall is a top priority during the Covid-19 pandemic.


We will have the hall cleaned regularly and will supply hand sanitiser at the entrance of the hall, disinfectant spray and soap and hand towels in our toilets and kitchen for all users. Our risk assessment is here.


However, it will be the hirers responsibility to take all adequate steps to ensure that their users can socially distance both within and outside the hall and also when attendees are queuing to enter the hall.   


It is also the hirers responsibility to carry out a risk assessment to ensure compliance with government regulations for the activity or event that you will hold in our hall.


Terms and Conditions

All bookings are subject to our Terms & Conditions which you can read here.  Please note, it is the hirers responsibility to set up, organise their event themselves, put back the tables and chairs at the end of their hire into the store room and leave the hall, kitchen, and all other areas of hire in good condition.  All hire costs will have to be settled before picking up the keys to the hall and set up time will also have to be paid for.


Hirers will be required to turn loud music off by 11pm as the hall is situated in a residential area and vacate the hall and grounds by midnight on a Friday and Saturday night.  Please be aware that the kitchen will also be accessible to all hall users - please speak to the bookings secretary if this will be a problem for your event or meeting.

The first time you try to request a booking via Hallmaster, you will need to register.  You will then be sent a password, which will enable you to log in to your account.  If you go straight to the Create Booking page, you will have to add yourself as a customer first before the booking can be accepted.


If you try to request a new booking and are told that your email address is already registered, please use the ‘I’ve forgotten my password’ link to get a password. This will then enable you to log in.

For more information on how to use the system, please see the Hallmaster Public User Guide.

Via the system, you can book the Walnut Room or the Chestnut Room or the whole hall.  If you would like to book the whole hall, just select either Chestnut or Walnut Room, click on the + in the right hand corner of the date you want to book and then select Chestnut and Walnut Rooms in the Create Booking page.
