After 3 years of static hire rates, the Committee has decided that it must raise prices with effect from 1st April 2022. Over the past 3 years we have absorbed the cost of the increases in electricity, water and oil and with inflation starting to increase, it has become necessary to look carefully at our hire rates. We have done our best to keep increases in line with the RPI, but also mindful that we are serving our community with a great facility, which we want to see well used.
