Useful information about the Village Hall
Equipment includes –
CHAIRS AND TABLES
Trestle tables (25 in number) are stored under the stage on pull-out trolleys. Chairs are also under the stage and there are also some stacked in the hall. Trolleys are provided for moving chairs and tables. Blocks are also stored under the stage to the right.
There are 25 blue upholstered arm chairs which provide for more comfortable seating, and 18 pale green upholstered chairs which are usually stored on the stage.
HEATING, LIGHTING AND POWER
The heating controls are located in the kitchen. Please let the booking secretary know if you need the village hall to be particularly warm or cold. Do not adjust individual radiators/heaters as this will result in the village hall being too cold or hot for subsequent users. If you have booked during the winter, spring or autumn, the heating will be programmed to come on and go off when appropriate. There is an ‘over-ride’ facility to extend the heating for an hour at a time (details next to the heating controls). There is constant hot water in the sinks.
Mood lighting is available in both the main hall and small hall. Uplighters in the main hall can be individually dimmed.
There are various power sockets located around the main hall and small hall.
The village hall has no telephone and the nearest one is located outside the George Hotel in Church Street. So you are advised to bring a fully charged mobile telephone for use in case of emergency - but reception in the hall is poor so you may find yourself standing outside in the rain!
The village hall car park will accommodate 14 cars if they are parked sensibly. There is more parking on the road outside the hall and the nearly free village car park (5 minutes away) holds 54.
All Hall users are asked to separate their rubbish and take bottles, cans and paper to the recycling bank at the Recreation Ground, Blackford Road, Wedmore; and take food waste away as dogs and foxes break open the black bin bags if left outside.
SOUND SYSTEM AND STAGE LIGHTING
A professional quality sound system with mixing desk is available for use. This can be linked to the main hall Induction Hearing Loop. Stage lighting with dimming facilities is also available. If you want to use these facilities please make this clear when you place your booking.
Wheelchair access to the hall is via a ramp which leads directly into the rear of the main hall.
The intention is to publish a picture gallery of the many uses to which the hall has been put - to give potential users an idea of how good the hall can look for an event.
Please let us know if you have any good photos or other input.
