Using the Hall - Lessee Responsibilities

The Lessee is responsible for the correct use of the Hall facilities during the let period.

The fish key provided should be used to switch on the emergency exit lights as soon as the hall is occupied. These exit lights should be switched off when the hall is vacated.

All lights should be switched off and all doors securely fastened and alarm set, where necessary, when the premises are vacated. If the Main Lights in the main hall are switched off inadvertently they will take six minutes to re-ignite.

Please check the entire building, including the newsletter office in the corridor to the rear of the Friendship and Wainman Rooms. When an alarm is set off in error, and this necessitates a callout, any charges made will be recouped from the lessee.

Breakages or damage must be recorded in the 'damages' book, kept in the reception office, so that repairs can be effected.

Lessee's posters may be displayed on notice boards.

White boards, with suitable pens are supplied for the use of lessees. Please do not attach anything to the walls.

Lessees are asked to leave the premises in a clean condition ready for the next let. A charge may be made if the premises are unfit for the next let and extra cleaning is necessary.

It is the responsibility of the lessee to ensure that all food and drink debris is cleared away and that the room is left in a tidy condition.

The hall has a supply of tablecloths and tea towels, which may be used by lessees. If used they must be laundered and returned as soon as possible and ready for other users.

All electrical equipment owned by the Hall Committee is tested regularly and 'tabbed' with date of inspection. Any electrical equipment brought into the Hall e.g. toasters, Radio, Disco Equipment etc should be checked by the electrician nominated by the Hall Committee before use. Please refer to the attached contact list contained within the User Manual / Handbook.
