The Pavilion Terms and Conditions of Hire

Click for a .pdf version of the Terms and Conditions

The pavilion is operated on a purely voluntary basis by Canbury Community Trust, a charity set up by local residents for the benefit of the community. It is necessary to charge for use in order to cover running costs (rental, insurance and electricity amounts to approx. £3,200 pa). The surplus is used to maintain and improve the facilities and for other charitable purposes.

Users are therefore asked to ensure that their guests/clients/children do not abuse the facility. We also have to ask you to clean up rather more thoroughly than you would normally expect. This includes the toilet facilities.

All rubbish bags are to be taken home at the end of each booking and disposed of properly as a condition of booking.
