Sale or Supply of Alcohol

The Village Hall is not licenced to sell or supply alcohol.

Those hiring the village hall who wish to supply alcohol which is to be paid for either through a cash bar or through the sale of attendance tickets will need to apply for a Temporary Events Notice issued by Sedgemoor District Council. A TEN currently costs £21 and more information can be found here.

Those hirers supplying alcohol which is not being sold during the event or has not been included in a ticket price prior to the event do not need a TEN.



The village hall has public liability insurance (£5,000,000) and whilst this covers use of the Village Hall and its equipment, users are advised that it does not cover their own public liability or equipment/materials brought into the hall.
