Village Hall

Redmarley Village HallRedmarley Village Hall was originally the village school, built in 1860. It has served as a community building for the village and outlying areas for many years and was substantially extended and modernised in 1995. The main hall is a large room with a beamed roof and is very suitable for parties and large meetings. There are two smaller meeting rooms and a kitchen. For sports there are changing rooms (Home & Away) with hot showers.

The Hall is managed by a charitable trust (registered number 301604). Please click for Chairman’s 2017 AGM Report and Village Hall Accounts.

Notes for Hirers (click for printable document)

1. Car park lighting

The person opening the hall will need to switch on the car park lighting by pressing the button on the switch at the top left of the disabled toilet door.  The red light will go on and the outside lights will be operated by the sensor for all of your hire period. They will switch off automatically after you have left.

2. Other users

You may find that other people are using another part of the hall at the same time as you. Please co-operate with each other in ensuring that these rules of use are followed.

3. Heating

The heating is programmed to warm up the hall in time for your period of hire. The corridors and kitchen will be heated and the main hall or Ian Smith room as appropriate. You can manually control the heating by the controller in the boiler room – see instructions on back of door. To save on our heating costs, please check the boiler room controller before you leave and ensure that
both channels are OFF – i.e. the red lights are not illuminated.

The main hall is a large room and if, on cold days, the radiators cannot manage to bring the room to a comfortable temperature, you may need to supplement it with the electric radiant heaters (see below). The ceiling fans are designed not for cooling but for pushing the heat down from the apex of the hall roof.

If it gets too hot, do not adjust the radiator thermostats. You may use the wall thermostat in the main hall to reduce the target temperature; press “-” until the star * goes out.

4. Hot water

For the kitchen & the disabled toilets:

In the winter, the hot water is programmed to be on while you are there and runs from the same controls as the central heating. In the summer, see instructions in the kitchen for obtaining hot water.

For the bar and the Ladies/Gents toilets:

This is controlled by a switch in the electricity cupboard. Select 1, 2, 3 or 4 hours by pressing the boost switch. Don’t forget to re-press it if you are there for longer.

In case of any difficulties with the central heating or hot water, first check in the boiler room that the channel lights are on; follow the instructions if necessary. Alternatively, please ring 01531 650371 or 07860 935864 (Peter Condon).

5. Radiant heaters

The radiant heaters are controlled by switches on the main hall wall. You will need to feed the electric meters (£ coins) located in the middle cupboard in the entrance hall. Note that the two boxes control separate heaters. Switch off heaters before feeding the meter!

6. Fire Exits

Please ensure that you are familiar with the location of the three fire exits.

7. Kitchen

The kitchen must be left in a clean condition, as you found it. Please take all rubbish with you. You may use the refrigerator during your period of hire but do not leave any surplus food or drink in it. Do not use any items from cupboards marked as being for Playgroup use only.

8. Leaving check list

i)  Check that all rooms are clean and swept if necessary. Key 3 opens the broom cupboard (marked “Cloakroom”).

ii) Check boiler room to see that heating is OFF.

iii) Check that all lights are off.

iv) Check that kitchen door to outside is locked and all windows closed.

v)  Please return the keys after locking up the hall.
