Whilst we try to keep the hall hire charges low, they have been held at the current rate for over 4 years, due to the recent increase in the cost of electricity, the halls are now in the position that when the heaters are in use, some events are costing more in electricity than is being charged for the hall hire.

With that in mind a group is currently assessing the hire charges for the halls, which will have to increase to keep the halls open. Once the result of the group is finalised, new hall hire charges will be published.
