Pavilion at the Gallowstree Common Recreation Ground

The Parish Council has obtained planning permission for the new pavilion at the Gallowstree Common Recreation Ground to be used for community purposes, as well as for cricket and football. The primary purpose remains, however, as a sports pavilion.

The Kidmore End Playing Fields Committee, the registered charity which manages the premises on the Council's behalf, is, therefore, making the function facilities at the Pavilion available for hire.

Under the terms of the planning permission, the premises may only be used between 0700 and 2330 hours on Mondays to Saturdays inclusive and between 0800 and 2230 on Sundays.

The premises will generally be available for hire during the day on weekdays throughout the year. Between 1 April and 30 September inclusive, the premises will generally not be available at weekends, and only on Friday evenings. Between 1 October and 31 March of the following year inclusive, the premises will generally be available on Saturdays, on Sunday afternoons and on any evenings.

The interim hiring charge, for local residents and groups, is £10 per hour, together with a deposit for private parties, which will not be refunded in the event of any damage to the premises or activities beyond the scope of the booking conditions.
