bullet Microwave
bullet Plate warmer
bulletTwo sinks – one for hand washing and one for washing up.
bullet Commercial dishwasher: Hire charge of £3 per session - add it to your booking form if you want to use it so we can be sure that you understand how to work it. It's not like a domestic one!
bulletCrockery and cutlery: as a service to our customers we will ensure that 60 place settings are available in the kitchen - there may be more. Cutlery (kept in the ‘hot’ cupboard with the sliding doors in the middle of the kitchen) includes serving spoons and teaspoons. Crockery (kept in the cupboards with the slatted-doors in the kitchen) includes 20+ Pyrex serving bowls. If you need more than 60 place settings you can hire from us high quality white tableware (up to 150 place settings). The hire charge is £7.50 per day for 30 place settings of crockery and £7.50 per day for 30 place settings of cutlery. If you want cups and saucers this is an additional £3.00 per day for 30. Breakages are charged at £2.50 per item.

SOUND SYSTEM AND STAGE LIGHTING  

A professional quality sound system with mixing desk is available for hire. This is connected to the Main Hall induction Hearing Loop. Stage lighting and a professional lighting desk are also available for hire. If you want to use these facilities please make this clear when you place your booking. The basic charge for a simple setup of 2 spotlights and a microphone is £20 for a session. We can assist with more complex requirements, subject to a minimum additional charge of £10.

CHAIRS AND TABLES

Trestle tables (25 in number) are stored under the stage on pull-out trolleys as well as chairs and stage blocks, e.g. to raise up presenters or "top table" at a function. Trolleys are provided for moving chairs and tables.

There are blue upholstered arm chairs in the Snug to provide for more comfortable seating, and 18 pale green upholstered chairs which are usually used and stored in the Small Hall.

HEATING, LIGHTING AND POWER

The heating timer is located in the kitchen. It is set for you by the caretaker, and there is also an ‘over-ride’ facility for you to extend the heating for an hour at a time if you need to (details next to the heating timer). Individual thermostats in the Main Hall and Small Hall allow you to make minor changes to the temperature. Please do not adjust individual radiators as this will unbalance the system. 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 instant 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.

NEAREST TELEPHONE

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!

CAR PARKING

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.

RUBBISH

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.

ACCESSIBILITY  

Wheelchair access to the hall is via a ramp which leads directly into the rear of the main hall.

DEPOSIT

If you are hiring any of the kitchen equipment or stage facilities listed above we will take a £100 returnable loss/damage deposit - the easiest way to pay being a cheque, to be destroyed by us in the event that nothing is lost/damaged.
