Special Conditions of Hire during COVID-19 Version 3: Information for Event Organisers.

Please note that the hall will normally be cleaned thoroughly once per week including the floors and more frequently depending on demand.

1. You must not enter if you or anyone in your household has COVID-19 symptoms.

2. You are no longer required to wear masks in the main hall, but the vulnerable and those aged 70 and over may feel safer if those attending an event are encouraged to wear a mask.

3. You, the hirer, will be responsible for ensuring those attending your activity or event comply with the current COVID-19 Governement Guidelines. Please continue using the hand sanitiser supplied when entering the hall and after using tissues.

4.  You, the hirer,  will be responsible for cleaning door handles, light switches, window catches, equipment, toilet handles and seats, wash basins and all surfaces likely to be used during your period of hire before other members of your group or organisation arrive and to keep the premises clean through regular cleaning of surfaces during your hire, paying particular attention to wash hand basins and kitchen sinks (if used), using either the products supplied or your own ordinary domestic products. You will be required to clean again on leaving. Please take care cleaning electrical equipment. Use wipes – do not spray!

5. You will make sure that everyone likely to attend your activity or event understands that they MUST NOT DO SO if they or anyone in their household has had COVID-19 symptoms in the last 7 days.

6. You will be responsible for the disposal of all rubbish created during your hire, including tissues and cleaning cloths, in the  waste bins provided in the kitchen, hall, toilets and entrance lobby.

7. You will be responsible, if drinks or food are brought ,for ensuring that all crockery and cutlery is washed in hot soapy water, dried, and stowed away. You will bring your own clean tea towels, so as to reduce risk of contamination between hirers, and take them away. We will provide washing up liquid and washing up cloths.

8. The Hall for All Trustees  will have the right to close the hall if there are safety concerns relating to COVID-19, for example, if someone who has attended the hall develops symptoms and thorough cleansing is required or if it is reported that the Special Hiring Conditions above are not being complied with, whether by you or by other hirers, or in the event that public buildings are asked or required to close again. If this is necessary, we will do our best to inform you promptly and you will not be charged for this hire.
