Kilham Hall Car Park Update

It has been agreed that the car park will remain open for park users, however when the hall is in use it will be for the hirers use (and their guests) only.  The car park will open from 9am until 6pm each day, 7 days per week April to October and 9am to 4pm, 7 days per week November to March.  This situation will be reviewed at each parish council meeting. 

We ask that you please take care when manoeuvring around the car park and drive at a maximum speed of 5mph. Users are asked to vacate the car park by the relevant closing time to allow for the gates to be locked.
