Calverton Parish Council announce hire rate freeze and discounts for community groups

Calverton village hall hire rates frozen and discounts provided for community groups


Calverton Parish Councillor Andy Meads delivered good news to residents and community groups in Calverton this week.

In a social media post Councillor Meads said: “At this weeks parish council meeting we had to agree new hire rates coming into affect at the end of March.

“Despite huge increase in electricity and gas, and the cost of all the improvements to the site we decided to freeze the prices from last year for another year, taking us up to March 2025, that’s the hall, meeting room, conference room, kitchens, community units, changing rooms, and football pitches.”

Councillor Meads added: “As well as not putting the prices up we have decided to offer a substantial discount on the room hire charges for none for profit, voluntary groups running community activities, such as parent and toddler groups, social groups, special interest groups, clubs, etc – contact the parish office for more information.”

The versatile space is available for booking during regular morning, afternoon and evening slots, providing a flexible solution to cater to a variety of community needs.”
