Erection of marquee extra charge                            £300  with agreement of Trustees

Due to problems caused by helium balloons to the ceiling fans and the high cost of repair, should the hirer wish to have such balloons, there will be an extra bond of £250 to cover the cost of replacement motors.

It is the Trustees policy that Parties or activities that have music will require booking the whole hall as the nature of the activity would adversely affect any other hirer due to the proximity of the rooms involved.  This allows the hirer exclusive use of all facilities.

Hirers booking only the main hall or the meeting room rather than the whole hall may have to be prepared to share the kitchen facilities etc with hirers using other parts of the hall, and will be expected to have due regard to the effects of their activity on the other users.

A Residents’ rate may apply to bookings made for the private, personal use of a resident of Compton Dundon or Littleton, or for an organisation run for the benefit of the residents of the same. These rates are available on request.
