The law states that no-one must smoke within five metres of any door or window that opens. Therefore, the only place where people may smoke within the Halls grounds is against the front hedge. By signing the booking form the hirer agrees to ensure this smoking policy is adhered to and that any fine imposed upon the Hall by the appropriate authority will be passed onto, and paid by, the appropriate hirer. The hirer also agrees to ensure the ‘smoking area’ is left clean at the end of the hire
