Please present a copy of your certificate of insurance to OPEN before the start of the hire period.

Damage

The hirer will be responsible for making good all damage done to the premises during the hire. This includes the structure, the decoration, the fixtures and fittings, the furnishings and all other contents. We accept fair wear and tear. The hirer should not drag furniture across any of the floors and nothing should be fixed to any surface of the centre, we hate “blu tac”! It is the responsibility of the hirer to

  • ensure they have carried out their own risk assessments before any activity takes place
  • have their own safeguarding policy which should include DBS checks where appropriate
  • have a means of contacting the emergency services as there are no available telephones on site
  • make sure any electrical appliances brought onto the premises have a current portable appliance certificate provided by a competent person
  • ensure that no naked flames or incense are burnt on the premises
  • ensure that individuals attending their group are aware of the rules set out in this policy


Any hiring of an OPEN venue is subject to all statutory and regulatory provisions current at the time. By law smoking is not permitted in the buildings. Illegal drugs should not be consumed on the premises. The hirer/group should also not cause offence, inconvenience or nuisance to other users or neighbours of OPEN.

The hirer named on the rental agreement, or their nominated person, must be present throughout the hire period. The hirer must have a named person responsible for ensuring that emergency evacuation procedures are in place in case of fire or other emergencies.
