The Village Hall is managed by Goostrey Parish Council and has a team of dedicated staff headed up by our Village Hall Supervisors Yvonne and Chris Duke (contact via email villagehall.goostreypc@gmail.com or by phone on 07425 511680).  On this page we have tried to give you access to all the information you need to make a booking in the Village Hall.

The Village Hall Supervisors manage all aspects of the day to day running of the Village Hall including bookings, room setup/take down and cleaning services, maintenance and keep all the rooms to a very high standard of cleanliness.  Yvonne and Chris can also offer help and advice for organising your event.

“I wanted on behalf of Cancer Research group in Goostrey extend a huge thank you for the help you gave us in advance and on the evening. I thoroughly appreciated the flexibility you brought and ensured that we all had the best out of the rooms provided. I recognise that there was a lot of chair setting out and moving them around in time to work seamlessly with the fashion show group who had a lot of gear to bring in and empty at the end of the night.  It was a pleasure to meet with and work with you, and once again a huge thank you and no doubt we’ll meet again very soon as we’re back in on the 5th Nov for our Christmas Market.”  Goostrey Cancer Research Group

Set up/Take Down and Cleaning Services

Hirers who require support for their event for example, providing access for caterers or entertainers, set up/takedown of tables and chairs and/or cleaning can book this service which is based on a minimum charge of £18.00 and is not subject to a discount.

This service is charged depending upon the level of support required, such as setting up and putting away chairs and tables, and the condition and cleanliness of the facility after the event.  For example, a charge of £18 would cover basic support for hire of the Lounge only.  Hire of the Hall and Lounge with set up and take down of furniture, plus cleaning would attract a higher service charge. Hirers who don’t book this service must leave the whole premises clean and tidy, including the toilets, corridors and foyer area, so that it is ready for the next event.  Failure to comply with this rule will mean that charges for cleaning will be made at the appropriate rate which could include overtime surcharges.

The service must be booked for events such as parties, children’s parties, weddings and discos etc. and when the hiring the School Kitchen.
