The Hall Manager administers hall rental, logs maintenance requirements and
complaints on a day-to-day basis on behalf of the Hall Management Committee and
Christ Church PCC. Any issue that cannot be resolved by the Hall Manager must be
presented to the Hall Management Committee Chairman with a written case and a
recommendation. Maintenance or improvement suggestions should be passed to the
Hall Manager and/or the Hall Management Committee. This committee will determine
any actions required and will liaise with the PCC or Standing Committee if
higher approval is required.
