Facilites

Summary

Normal residential use is for 8-20 persons and is available all year.  The hall has two rooms, one is a large open area with night store heaters backed up by an open fire and coin operated heaters. There are around 40 padded chairs and 10 tables.  The other room is the kitchen area but with ample space for eating too. Here tables can seat around 15 to eat comfortably.  There is one disabled shower/toilet and two other toilets.

We  offer the hall as a great value residential facility for well organised groups eg Scouts and Guides, Sports Clubs (eg orienteers) and family get-togethers to provide an income to help maintain the building as  a space for community activities.  See our website http://finsthwaitevillagehall.org/

Details

The building was once the village school and has two rooms.  Both are bright,  light and well heated with clean polished floors which are cleaned regularly.  Heating is from background night store heaters with the option of extra pay-as-you go heaters. The main room also has a traditional open fire.

The building can accommodate  around 16-20 people. If separate sleeping is required, eg for adults or male/female split, the smaller room with the fitted kitchen can sleep around 8.  Sleeping arrangements are: bring your own camp-beds or pop up tents (no pegs!) and sleeping mats – this is a popular option with Cubs/Brownies  and other groups who need to provide separation between boys/girls and adults. There are separate male and female toilets and a disabled shower.

The second room has a fitted kitchen with large oven, 6 ring ceramic hob,  fridge with ice compartment, microwave, hand washing sink etc.  There is a good selection of cups, crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils. There are 10 tables and around 40 padded dining chairs.

We ask that all residential guests leave the hall as clean as they find it. All our cleaning is done by volunteers from the village as this enables us to run the hall cost effectively.

There is ample space for parking outside. Other facilities include a barbeque and a small grassed garden for relaxing. Please note the village is a very quiet place and we ask that groups do not make excessive noise outside, especially after 8pm. The yard is not really big enough for football.
