Hire prices

Although running costs have increased substantially, the hire charges for the Village hall had remained unchanged since September 2013.

In March 2020, the Village Hall Management Committee decided that it was necessary to increase the hire charges from 1st September 2020 onwards. It was subsequently agreed that, due to the coronavirus pandemic and consequent disruption, the increase should be deferred until 1st March 2021.

The fees were increased by approximately 6% (i.e. an extra 50p to £1 per hour, depending on the facilities booked).

In accordance with the usual Village Hall policy, any hirer who had made a booking for 2021/2022 and who paid in full before 1st December 2020, will be charged at the existing (2013) rate. All new bookings will be charged at the higher rate.

The prices below are for the new 2021 rates.
