Hiring Charges

The Management Committee strive to keep all associated running costs to a minimum. We are therefore able to offer the use of the centre at very low rates compare to halls of a similar size.

Further Information

Opening and closing the Community Centre

The Community Centre will be opened for your hiring and will be closed for you at the time you have indicated. Alternatively, keys should be returned to Michelle Kings at Bernlea, Walford Road, Ross on Wye, HR9 5PY.

Please ensure that any outside caterers, contractors and bar staff are aware of the hire period and that they will not be able to enter before or leave after the hire period.

Please telephone 07969178457 or 07899797691 in case of difficulty.

Guests are expected to vacate the premises within fifteen minutes of the end of a licensed period. After midnight (unless the event is New Year’s Eve) only those helping to clear up the Community Centre should be on the premises. Failure to comply with this will result in forfeiture of your deposit.


The Community Centre has a No Smoking policy.

In the event of a fire, the Community Centre should be evacuated in an orderly manner using the appropriate exits, and the Fire Brigade called by dialing 999.

The exact location of the nearest telephone, fire exits and fire extinguishers must be noted before the Community Centre is occupied and the manner of opening Fire Doors should be made known to your guests.

A First Aid box is located in the kitchen.

Power circuits/heating

The heating controls are located in the main hall and meeting room. Please let the booking secretary know if you need the Community Centre to be particularly warm or cold. Do not adjust individual radiators/heaters as this will result in the Community Centre being too cold or hot for subsequent users.


The Community Centre does not have a telephone so you are advised to bring a fully charged mobile telephone for use in case of emergency.

Car parking

The lane leading to the Community Centre is a public road and this must not be obstructed. The Community Centre has 16 parking spaces plus 2 disabled parking spaces. If these are all busy, please park sensibly in Walford Avenue.

Consideration for others

Please ask your guests to leave quietly at the close of your event. Car doors banging and loud talk in the car park are disturbing to local residents.

Please do not use drawing pins or sellotape on the walls or other surfaces, use blu-tack if you need to put up notices or decorations. Do not fix decorations near light fittings or heaters.

Please leave the Community Centre clean and tidy and take waste home. In particular we ask you to ensure table tops are wiped clean before being stacked in the cupboard.

Faults/ damage/ comments

Please report any faults or damage to the booking secretary as soon as possible so that they can be rectified quickly. The management committee welcome comments or observations that you may have about your hire of the Community Centre.
