Strines Pavilion: Acceptable Use Policy

Strines Pavilion is owned and managed by Strines Recreation Ground (SRG), which is a local charity, registration number 520486.


The purposes of the charity are to “Provide for sports, recreation, landscape and nature conservation for the benefit of the local community”. It does this by developing and maintaining the holdings. It is managed on behalf of the local community by a team of elected trustees who are all volunteers.

The Pavilion in Strines is a fantastic amenity for the whole local community and as such the Trustees seek to ensure that it is well maintained, clean, and available for as many local groups that may want to hire it.


The Trustees are also very conscious that the Pavilion is sited within a quiet residential area, therefore there are conditions for any group or individual wishing to hire the facility which we ask all users to respect and observe.


Conditions of private use:


  • Private bookings will only be taken from residents within the Strines catchment ( within 10 miles from the Pavilion ).  Anyone outside the catchment zone requires approval and will require a  £50 deposit*.


  • The capacity of the Pavilion internally is defined as 50 guests.  An additional 50 guest located outside on the green requires approval. The additional guest beyond 50 to a maximum of 100 numbers will require a deposit of £50*.



  • Hirers should be aware that any additional equipment engaged as part of the event, eg bouncy castles etc, is done so at the discretion of the hirer who will take complete responsibility for safety and supervision


  • Alcohol may be served though never sold.


  • If the provision of alcohol is planned as part of the event, this must be notified to the SRG trustees (the social secretary or delegated person) at the time of booking. An additional deposit of £50 * will also be required, which will be forfeit should any nuisance arise because of the event.


  • The person making the booking will be deemed responsible for the behaviour of all guests and should ensure that no infringements of usual expectations occur, for example there should be no under-age drinking or rowdy behaviour causing nuisance to residents.

  • Music, whether live or recorded, should not be audible beyond the confines of the Pavilion building after 9pm


  • All music should cease at 11pm as per the covenants for Mill Green Estate

  • The event hosts should strive to remind guests of the need to restrict noise from cars etc when leaving the site.

*A single deposit is only required.

The Trustees would like everyone to use and enjoy the area and our facilities for years to come; the best way to ensure we achieve this is for everyone to respect these terms and the intentions behind them
