Ashingdon & East Hawkwell Memorial Hall


Hire charges

Price Increase

Unfortunately as there will be astronomical utility increases in October we will need to increase our hire charges to help keep the hall open.  Though it is our aim to support our community by keeping hall charges as low as we can, there is no cap on our energy bills.

This increase will be effective for all new hires and invoices for regulars from 1st October. Each hire band for the main hall will increase by £5 per hour and the Room of Requirement by £1.50. We can only apologise for this and assure you the committee have not taken this decision lightly. 

Please be aware

  • Due to the fragility of our hall floor we cannot have guests wearing high heeled shoes. 
  • Hire is subject to the agreement of our terms and conditions 
  • we currently do not allow bookings for adult celebratory parties in the hall in the evening due to staffing difficulties and the fragility of the hall floor.
