New hiring charges for the Village Hall – effective from April 1st 2019

Our current hiring charges have been in place since October 2010 and, given the ever-rising costs of running the hall, we felt that it was time to look at them again.

We always bear in mind the fact that we are smaller than many halls and that people have to pay extra for electricity. However, we have been charging, in some cases, significantly less than our neighbouring halls and we feel that our new charges are fair and still very competitive.

We will now offer two rates, one rate for Hambledon residents and another, standard rate, (roughly 20% more) for non-residents, which is something that most halls do. Full details of the new charges can be found below.

We hope that people will appreciate the need for this increase. We are, as ever, immensely grateful for all the support the hall receives from everyone in Hambledon, without which we would be unable to run with or without any increase in hiring charges.
