Parties in the Garden

You are very welcome to hold small parties in the Garden for your friends. If you expect to have 15 or more people please read the read the Guidelines for Parties with over 15 people and  inform WBM at least three weeks beforehand. You should specify the date and timing of the party and the number of people you expect to come. This is also in your interest since WBM will be able to tell you if anyone else is planning a party for the same date (and thus competing for the use of tables, etc.). On very rare occasions, it may be that multiple keyholders have requested permission to hold a party in the Garden on your date and you will be advised that there will not be sufficient space for yours.

When you have a party, please be considerate towards other Garden users:

  • Dont reserve a table before you are going to use it
  • If you have a barbecue, put it on the gravel path
  • No music and unruly behaviour allowed
  • Try and keep the noise level within reasonable limits
  • Do not leave the Garden gates open
  • Take your rubbish home with you (including barbecues). Please do not use the garden bins as they are too small for large amounts of rubbish
  • Leave the picnic tables clean for other Garden members after you have used them
  • Pick up any cigarette ends, bottle caps, corks etc. which have ended up on the grass
  • Try to avoid bringing glass to minimise risk of breakage, leading to sharp pieces of glass being left behind
