do not have:
- A hireable kitchen - while we do
have a registered cafe (that has a Food Standards Agency food hygiene rating
of 5) where groups hiring one of our rooms or halls can buy
refreshments, we don't let hirers use the actual kitchen due to health and
- Free Wifi - groups hiring a room
may ask for the wifi code if they require it but we don't provide internet
access to the public.
- P.I.R lighting - all our lights
are controlled by light switches.
It is always advisable to visit the building before making a booking so that

are not accepted over the phone or by e-mail unless you are a regular user.

three hour session scheme. All prices are for the total three hours
regardless of whether the rooms are wanted for less than that time.
- The fixed sessions are:
- Morning: 10am to 1pm
Afternoon: 1pm to 4pm
Evening: 7pm to 10pm
- Cleaning and maintenance are done between
the afternoon and evening sessions so hirings inside these times are not
usually allowed. One exception would be when we're used as a Polling
Thirdly: know who you are to us.
- We operate a three tier pricing system
depending upon what the room will be hired for. An explanation of the 3 tiers

up of groups that are neither commercial businesses nor made up from our members

stop hirers from assuming they have made a booking before we can check that
the rooms they wish to hire are actually available for the time/ date that they
wish to hire it for.
