We want to build and support strong, active and inclusive communities across the Parish to encourage people to take an active part in making decisions, delivering and influencing services across the Parish.
Easteds Barn was completed in 1996. It has a modern exterior with the interior having been designed in the style of a 16th Century Barn with wooden timbers and beams.
There is adequate parking for 30 cars. The facility has a main hall, small fitted kitchen including fridge; there are no cooking facilities. (The Parish Council's office can provide a list of local catering suppliers). There are gents, ladies and disabled toilets.
The facility is wholly owned by Southwater Parish Council. Hirings/Lettings are subject to the Council's Hire Agreement being entered into and at the Council's discretion; the building is an unmanned building. This facility is designed a "meeting room" with no premises licences.
However, the Parish Council is currently applying for a full premises licence, which will increase the hiring potential of the building. Full details will appear on this website, once this is obtained.
Community organisations must be locally (Southwater Parish) based and either be a charity or a non profit making organisation with the exception of bookings by a County or District Council who are considered by the Parish Council to be a community organisation. All such organisations will be required to complete the Parish Council Booking Form and comply with the Terms and Conditions of Hire.
Commercial organisations wishing to hire any Council premises, should hold £10M Public Liability Insurance Cover, provide a copy of their insurance certificate to this effect and provide a risk assessment in addition to the completion of the relevant bookings forms and comply with the Terms and Conditions of Hire.
