Private Parties, Functions, Etc

We do want you to enjoy using Carnation Hall but would remind you:

  • It is expected that you will leave the building in the same condition that you found it. Charges have not been calculated to include additional cleaning after your function and another booking may be following quite quickly afterwards. If the Parish Council does have to pay for extra cleaning or for extra caretaking, there WILL be additional charges together with an administration charge.
  • Your setting up and clearing away time is to be included within the times stated on the Hiring Agreement.
  • The finishing time stated on the Hiring Agreement is the time at which you and ALL the members of your party should vacate the premises. This includes the car park and grounds. (We are governed by Council rules and planning conditions and we do want to preserve good relations with our neighbours.) Running late also causes problems for the caretakers and involves extra costs.
  • Smoke machines set off the fire alarm system and MUST NOT BE USED.
  • Helium balloons set off the movement detector alarm if left to float in the building, so please inform the caretaker if you are taking helium balloons into the building.
  • No advertising material may be placed on street furniture or outside the perimeter of the grounds.
  • Bookings for teenage parties will NOT be accepted.
  • Although dogs are welcome in the grounds, dogs (except assistance dogs) are NOT permitted inside the building.

If you have any concern with these conditions or with the booking generally, please contact the office. We will do our best to help you.
