Confetti and Glitter

No Confetti or Glitter please. It is very difficult to clean up, so you might lose your
deposit if it is used and we have to do a very thorough clean. It isn’t good for the
environment either!

There is no dedicated parking at the Village Hall.  However, for larger parties, there is a small field adjacent to the hall that could be made available for parking (at own risk) by kind agreement with the landowner.  Further details are available upon request.

Can I install a Bouncy Castle?

Yes, provided the Hall floor is covered with a drugget.
