Become a frequent/regular hirer and hold your groups and classes at Stanton Village Hall
Based between Swadlincote and Burton with easy transport links and ample parking, Stanton Village Hall is an ideal venue for classes, meetings and workshops.
Regular hall hirers use the hall on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis. We currently accommodate several regular hirers who offer tai-chi, yoga, karate, fitness classes, line dancing, slimming, auction days, support groups, and art classes. You can view their sessions here.
HIRE FEES 2022
ACCESS TO THE HALL
Regular hirers can be provided with their own key-set for use at the times and days contracted. Hire includes access to the main hall, kitchen (+£1 per hour) and stage.
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Can be found here.
Regular hirers benefit from reduced rates against one-off hire prices. But, we do expect you to pay for the sessions reserved for you (for instance, if you hire the hall for three hours each week then we expect you will use and pay for these hours even if some weeks you decide to use only 1 hour).
Holidays weeks can be booked in advance allowing us to advertise this available hire opportunity. 4 non-billable holiday weeks a year are permitted.
PAYMENT (2022 rates)
See hire table above
Hire fees are chargeable to the nearest 15 minutes.
We currently operate a monthly invoicing system, with email invoices sent to regular hirers at the end of each month (new hirers may be asked to pay as they go initially). We accept PayPal, BACS and card payments. We do not accept cash.
A £50 damages deposit will be sought from you at the start of your hire and we will retain this for the duration of your hire. Our terms and conditions outline circumstances where this may be withheld (for instance, if damage is caused).
Some storage space may be available to regular hirers and can be discussed. A charge will be payable.
All equipment must be stored with our permission to ensure it does not impact our insurance or pose a danger to others.
SUPPORT FROM US
We're proactive in encouraging attendees to your classes and workshops.
We regularly use social media to promote what is happening at the Hall and can share posts that you ask us to.
We publish a weekly calendar on this website and at the Hall.
We invite class leaders to promote their activity at community events.
Because our regular classes usually enhance the lives of those in our community, we're also on-hand to explore ways to seek funding for new ideas. If you're considering running a class but need to chat it through with someone then please do just get in touch.
There are certain activities that we are not permitted to allow due to licensing, insurance or practical restrictions. For this reason we will need to consider the nature of your activity before allowing your activity.
We do accommodate children's craft materials and dog classes but may retain part or whole of the deposit should damage occur and ask that you bring your own cleaning equipment for these sessions.
We kindly ask that tape or tack is not used on our walls. There are some trims where this might be possible.
Bathroom waste can be bagged and left in our bins. If using the kitchen, there's no need to take the bin out unless full when you leave as we will do this for you. We ask that no other waste is left such as cardboard and you should treat this as your own businesses trade waste (we may be able to explore this separately).
All regular hirers should have sufficient insurances to cover themselves and their attendees for the activity being undertaken. Non-commercial hirers may be able to benefit from our hirers liability cover - see our General Hire section of our FAQs for more details on insurance.
We would like to work with individuals and groups in our community to offer more activity of community benefit - produce shows, kids activities etc. Where surplus from activity is put back into the Village Hall charity and where our hirer liability covers your activity we may be able to discuss a discounted hire rate.
HOW DO YOU DEFINE A REGULAR HIRER?
Regular hirers use the Hall for at least 4 hours each month and normally offer activity that our community can benefit from. If your use falls below the regular hire rate then we will charge you at the occasional hire rate.
At present, there is availability for groups and organisations to hire Stanton Village Hall on a regular basis. The Hall suits a range of recreational and learning activities such as:
After school clubs
Education groups (art classes, card making etc.)
We'd particularly welcome members of our community who would like to lead community activities that are social and recreational. Together, we may be able to identify support (funding, equipment, marketing) for your activities.
Pre-School groups and clubs
Senior citizens groups
Social clubs or groups
Proof of Insurance
We must ensure that all regular hirers have public liability insurance. Non-commercial activities may be covered under our hirer liability - an extension of our own insurances (search insurance in our FAQ section for more on this). You should upload your proof of insurance each year. Use the enquiry form above to upload your insurance annually (you don't need to fill the other bits in if you are an existing hirer).
