The Village Hall is a Selwyn District Council property, but is managed on behalf of the council by the CHCA.
See below for the availability calendar.
Facilities at the hall include a fully equipped kitchen (with cutlery/crockery/glasses to cater for approx 50), large 6-burner BBQ (please provide your own gas bottle), croquet set, badminton/volleyball net, table-tennis table, log burner and audio visual equipment (including DVD player, Sky dish/receiver, etc). The hall is available for use by groups of up to a maximum of 50 people currently.
Public vs Private Bookings
The hall can be booked by both residents & non-residents for either public or private events.
Events organised by residents which are open to any other resident of the village to attend do not normally attract a rental charge.
With the hall becoming more popular in recent times for regular winter evening gatherings for rugby screenings, aprez-ski, the community association is struggling to provide enough firewood. For these gatherings to remain free for residents, we ask that residents bring a koha of one piece of firewood per person along to winter evening gatherings.
Private events may be booked by CHCA members at the following rates:
- $50 per day until 5pm
- $70 per night from 5pm to 1am
- $100 per full day until 1am
Private bookings by non-CHCA members incur an approx. 25% extra charge (rates being $65, $90 & $125 respectively). A $100 cleaning / repair bond will be charged for non-CHCA members; this will be returned in full when the hall is left clean & tidy and in good condition. Renters will be liable for any damage or other costs incurred over and above the bond.
Note: it is expected that ALL hall users leave the hall tidy and clean on departure. Appropriate cleaning products can be found under the kitchen sink and in the cleaning cupboard in the foyer.
