No cars shall be parked in the private road behind the lay-by opposite and on the south side of the Hall, nor in such a position as shall obstruct access to this lay-by. There are extra parking spaces in the Recreation Ground about 200 yards from the Hall.

The Hirer is responsible (financially) for all damage to the Hall and to any property in the Hall occurring during the period of and arising from the hiring or while persons are entering or leaving the Hall, except damage caused by accidental fire and covered by the Trustees’ Insurance Policy. 

The property of the Hirer and his/her friends must be removed as soon as possible at the end of the hiring, and in the case of an evening hiring not later than 8. 45am on the following day. The Trustees accept no responsibility for any property left on the premises after the hiring.
