Village Hall Hire Fees

The Village Hall is run by a charitable trust. Hire fees cover its operating costs (mainly heating, cleaning, licencing and insurance) and equipment renewal. All hire fees quoted are inclusive of heating, lighting and use of the kitchen facilities.

Booked start and end times need to include all setting up and clearing up time. Hire fees are charged from the time the hirer enters the Hall to the time at which the hirer exits. If the Hall is occupied before or after the booked times, additional hire charges are payable.

The Hall will be cleaned to a high standard before and after every hire. Surfaces, floors and toilets will all have been checked and sanitised. After your event, the Hall will be inspected and then cleaned. Charges for this cleaning will be deducted from the security and cleaning deposit at the rate of 10.00/hr. For most events, cleaning takes 1.5-2.0 hours and therefore costs 15.00-20.00. For large events where the kitchen equipment has been used, a deep clean of the kitchen is needed and cleaning can cost 25.00-30.00.

Indicative Event Hire Fees (excluding cleaning charges)

Our hire fees currently include a 4.00/hour energy surcharge because of the global energy crisis. This will be removed as soon as the market settles down and our bills fall.

Event Type Hire fees Details
Educational, Charitable or Society Bookings 15.00/hr There are no cleaning charges for meetings, classes and rehearsals which are part of the regular programme of activity.
Private hire 20.00/hr Cleaning charges average 15.00 to 20.00 after these events
Business hire 25.00/hr Fees include ultra high speed broadband, audio visual equipment setup and cleaning.
Gaming Club Weekends Typically 350 + energy costs. Please enquire for details. From Friday evening to Sunday afternoon. The hall can be used through the night and the hire includes the use of camping/shower facilities. Cleaning charges average 25.00 after these events.

Hire fees are invoiced in advance together with a 50 or 100 security deposit added to the invoice (depending on the type of function). If the booked hours are exceeded, additional hire fees will be deducted from the deposit. If additional cleaning is also needed, this will be deducted from the security deposit. The remainder will be refunded in full if the hall is returned in a satisfactory conditon.

As the Hall does not pay business rates, there is only a limited collection of refuse and recycling by East Northamptonshire Council. Hirers are asked to take away their recycling and refuse as we are charged at least 2.50 per bag and the bags must be correctly sorted.
