Advice for hall users
- The Hall hirer is responsible for preparing the Hall for an event and for returning all furniture and crockery/cutlery to their allocated places at the end.
- Lights for the Hall are in the back room beyond the far end of the Hall on the back wall, next to the coin meter for heating. See floorplan in lobby.
- Tea towels are to be provided by hirer (see more information about the kitchen).
- If you require the use of the fridge you need to ensure you switch it on in sufficient time to cool down and at the end ensure the fridge is empty, switched off and left with the door open.
- No food remains (not even used tea bags) are to be left in the Hall; you should bring your own rubbish bag and take all rubbish away.
- If you wish to sell alcoholic drinks at the event, you will need (a) to seek permission from the Hall management (as there is a strict limit on how many ‘temporary event notices’ can be applied for in the premises each year); and (b) to apply for your temporary event notice (‘TEN’) from Cornwall Council; both of these MUST be done weeks before the event – find out more about TENs*.
- If you need to light the car park at the end of the event, use the labelled push button switch to give you five minutes of light; this button is located in the Hall by the back door next to the fire extinguisher.
- Needless to say, dangerous activities such as use of naked flames, fireworks, machinery, etc. are strictly banned both within the hall and in the immediate vicinity.
- If you require heat for your event you will need to put a (new) £1 coin or 20p coins into the meter located in the back room labelled “Hall heating” – £1 will provide 20 minutes of heating power; each 20p will provide four minutes.
- It is advised you start heating the Hall at least fifteen minutes prior to your guests arriving.
- To maintain this temperature, top up every so often, as required.
- Ensure the front door is kept closed.
- Do not adjust radiator thermostats; they are set at 5 within the hall, and 2 in adjoining rooms.
- If the boiler on the left of the back door is showing a green light everything is functioning normally. If on putting your money in or at any time during operation the light shows red and the heating is not coming on, please call John on 01208 821215, or Chris on 01208 821409, or Alan on 01208 821223.
