Book the Hall
As part of the relaxation of lockdown the Pathhead Village Hall is open and taking bookings in a phased manner. We will be open for different types of events as lockdown restrictions are relaxed. Different approaches may be required for different types of events based on Government advice. All approaches will be subject to changing government guidelines including relaxation or reimplementation of restrictions.
The full details of our approach can be found here and our risk assessment for this approach here. Our Test and Protect procedure is here. Similar proposals and risk assessments have been made for the Pathhead Sports and Social Club.
If you want to use the hall please use the booking form at the bottom of this webpage. In light of current restrictions you may want to discuss this before hand using our contact us email, by speaking to any of our committee members, or our chairman: Neil Dumbleton on 07880 235351. The calendar below also shows what activities are already booked on what days.
To use the hall you will need to follow new guidelines and make a written proposal to the committee, these can be found here. The aim of this is to ensure all users and the hall committee are aware of what is expected and how events are kept compliant with government guidelines. It also enables the hall committee to organise what happens between events. The trustees can help you fill out this form.
The Hall had a number of significant additional costs during lockdown and to re-commission the hall. The committee are however keen to have the hall used, to support local groups, charities and businesses, and to support the health and welfare of people in the district.
Please therefore contact us to discuss whether we can help with hire charges while you are restarting your events, hirers, etc.
£15 per hour
£55 per four hour block booking
£110 per eight hour block booking
We currently allow 15 minutes for set up of an event, but would ask all users to pay for any longer set up or takedown times. E.g. if you book a 1pm to 2pm slot, then we would open at 12.45pm, but ask you to leave promptly at 2pm. If you need longer then please book the hall for longer in 15 minute intervals. This also greatly helps our key holders and cleaner organise their time and will mean they are not waiting around for an event to finish.
