On becoming a keyholder we request that the hirer signs an agreement to pay £50 on loss of keys.

  4. SUPERVISION AND RESPONSIBILITY:  The Hirer will, during the period of the hiring, be responsible for supervision of the premises, the fabric and the contents, their care, safety from damage however slight; and the behaviour of all persons using the premises whatever their capacity including proper supervision of car-parking arrangements so as to avoid danger to members of the public and obstruction of the public highway.
