The hall is a valuable
resource open to the local community, managed by Progress Association. The hall
manager has a degree of flexibility in managing the hall while remaining
consistent with the aims above.

Users   The intention is to hire to groups and
people we know directly, which makes it truly a community hall. To develop these
links, we encourage regular users to join the association. This can be done via
a low-cost or no cost associate, non-voting membership.

    including Education/Training, Music, Theatre, Sports Clubs, Small scale social
    events : Dinners/ BBQs, events for children.
  • Not hired out for large scale parties, for use after 10:30pm or where the
    manager sees a risk of property damage.
  • Hiring by TPA members attracts a similar fee as non-members.
  • Events should have an association member supervise where possible
  • Prefer not to hire to groups not known to members 


  • Access to the key and the hall itself is based on a method recommended by
    the hall manager to the TPA committee, approved according to standard voting

    hirer pays a bond, obtains the key from the hall manager and receives the bond
    back on returning the key.
