Hall Hire at 1st Woy Woy Sea Scouts
Please note: Due to COVID regulations, hall hire will not resume until 20th July, 2020. Numbers in the hall are restricted to 24 people.
In 2015 our Hall underwent extensive upgrades and renovations to take us forward into the future and ensure that our Hall could meet our Scouting needs and community expectations. The Hall is located on the waters edge of Woy Woy Channel and the Brisbane Waters, just opposite Lions Park at the end of North Burge Road, Woy Woy.
First and foremost, the primary purpose of Scout premises is to provide for the needs of Scouting. 1st Woy Woy will always aim to make full use of our premises and make them a centre from which good Scouting will radiate. In keeping with the Scouts Australia Association policy, our premises can, where possible and when not required for Scouting purposes, be used by other worthwhile organisations for the benefit of the wider community. The Hall can be hired for community events, corporate training, children's parties, christenings, weddings and many other corporate and social events. We do not hire the hall for 18th and 21st birthday parties or end of Season Football Celebrations.
Hiring the Hall
Inquiries about hiring the Hall can be made through our Booking Officer who can help answer any of your questions about the Hall, availability and it's facilities. Once you decide to book, our Booking Officer has the authority to make decisions and deal with all aspects of your booking as covered by our Hall Hire Policy.
Hall Hire Fees & Charges
Our Hall Hire Fees and Charges are determined by our Group Committee and need to provide an adequate return for the capital invested to upgrade our Hall and cover recurring costs for cleaning, garbage charges, power and water supply, insurance and repairs and maintenance etc. The Hall Hire Fees and Charges set out below reflect an adequate proportional share of these costs, and are very competitively priced when you compare our Hall with other Halls of a similar standard and location.
It is also important to note that 1st Woy Woy Sea Scouts is a Registered Not For Profit Charity, that relies largely on Fundraising and Hall Hire Income to support our Scouting program, purchase and maintain equipment like boats and tents as well as maintain our property. We are all volunteers who work tirelessly and without payment, to serve our youth and our community by providing this service. We offer generous discounts to Community groups and Charitable events who are registered not for profit charities like us and we offer very competitive prices for all other private and commercial functions. To avoid disappointment or embarrassment, and to respect the time of our volunteers, please refrain from haggling and trying to negotiate a lower price and respect our Charity Status.
