1.1 All orders for us to provide services at your event (''the event'') must be placed in writing, by email or by fax.

Charges                     

2.1 Event charges will be outlined in quotation post enquiry.

2.2 Once at the event, regardless of the duration, the finish time specified on the booking form shall be considered as the finish time of the Event. If an Event continues beyond this finish time, we reserve the right to leave the Event at the specified finish time. Any possible overrun must be discussed with our on call duty manager. Where personnel are willing to remain at the Event, the relevant excess duty charges shall apply. In all incidences where the finish time exceeds that of the stated time on the booking form, excess duty charges will become payable.

2.3 If you wish to cancel your request for our attendance at your event or change the date or times of the Event, you must send us an email and telephone us. Cancellations received 7 days or less prior to the event will incur a 50% charge. Cancellations of less than 48 hours prior to the event will incur a 75% charge. Cancellations of less than 24 hours prior to the event will incur the full charge.  Events cancelled more than 7 days prior to event will incur no charge.

Customers paying an hourly rate for cover are charged per hour or part hour base to base. (Worthing),

2.6 In order to provide the best possible service, clients are asked to pay the full fee within 7 days of the invoice date. We understand and will exercise our statutory right to claim interest and compensation for debt recovery costs under the late payment legislation if we are not paid according to our agreed terms.
