When you have made your choice check the dates available with the office then complete the Application form attached and email, post or deliver it to the Church office next door to the hall together with your £50 deposit.

(From 0001 hrs 1st January 2019)












The previous rates were set in 2014 so this modest rise represents a 5% increase and is necessary to cover our bills and maintain the viability of the facility.
