Fire Regulations

No candles or naked flames are allowed in the hall

 

As the responsible person for hiring the hall, you have legal duties with regard to the safety of people attending the event:

 

Before the event or function you MUST check:

 

  1. The arrangements for escape if the fire alarms sound, including the identification of key escape routes.

  2. Any special arrangements needed for the safe evacuation of people identified as being especially at risk, such as those with disabilities, and children.

  3. The position of the fire extinguishers in all rooms.

  4. That all escape routes are clear of obstructions and combustibles.

  5. That you are familiar with the assembly point (the playing field beyond the patio to the East of the hall) in the event of evacuation.

  6. The method you would use to call the emergency services if necessary.

  7. The number of people who will be using the hall: Note: the hall is designed for 100 people (seated and standing). If a large number of people are present, the latches on the escape doors from the hall must be in the open position to allow both leaves of the doors to be pushed open in an emergency.

At the start of the event you MUST make all people present aware of:

 

  1. The arrangements for escape if the fire alarms sound, including the identification of key escape routes.

  2. Any special arrangements in place for the safe evacuation of people identified as being especially at risk, such as those with disabilities, and children.

  3. The need for all escape routes to be kept clear of obstructions and combustibles.

  4. The assembly point on the playing field in the event of fire.

OTHER  INFORMATION

 

Accessing the hall

There is a key safe outside the hall by the side entrance to the kitchen. You will be sent the instructions for using the key safe before your event, along with the current code.

 

“On Call”

A member of the committee will be “on-call” at the weekends. You will be sent the contact details along with the details for accessing the hall prior to your event. You may call this person if necessary. Please remember that all committee members are volunteers.

 

Re-cycling

We do not have facilities for re-cycling at the hall due to the high cost of extra facilities. Consequently, we ask all hirers to take their recycling away with them.
