  2. Provisional bookings that are made are not secure and are liable to change without notice.
  3. A request form must be completed and passed to DPML Reception in order for the booking to be confirmed or rejected by DPML staff.  If any substantial alteration to the number of persons shown on the form as attending is likely, DPML must be advised at least 3 days prior to the event. Any special requirements/requests should be shown on the booking form for consideration by DPML management who will advise as to whether these can be met.  If the bar is required, the booking request form must be received a minimum of 2 weeks prior to the event date.  A £100 deposit must be paid to Reception on receipt of approval for the event in order to confirm the booking.  Any booking which is subsequently cancelled by the hirer will result in the forfeit of the deposit.  (The only exception to rules 3. And 4. is for the purpose of funerals of residents, for which we do not require any deposit and which can be booked at short notice).

A refundable deposit of £100 for the hire of the function room must be paid as security for the cost of any additional staffing, cleaning, repairs or replacement to DPML property that is lost or damaged during the hiring. The deposit will be retained, and a refund made if the following conditions are met: The satisfactory inspection of the premises and completion of the checklist by DPML staff showing that no damage has occurred, Bar takings in excess of £150 if the bar was used.
