Can we access the Centre outside the booked hours to setup or clear away?

No. If your event requires time to setup before the event or clear away after the event then those hours must be included and paid for as part of your booking.


Must I clean up after an event?

The Centre must be as clean and tidy after your event as when you arrived, and you should include time in your booking to allow for this. A range of mops, dustpans and brooms are available to use. All rubbish must be removed and disposed of responsibly. Please remember to check on the toilets too.


Can I hire the Hall for 17th to 20th birthday parties?

No, unfortunately we are not able to cater for these events. Please see our Terms and Conditions for full details.


I'm running a charity event. Can the Centre be hired for free or at a reduced rate?

No. Many of our users are also charities and we strive to keep our hire charges as low as we can to encourage use by all members of the community so we charge for all events.


Will I have exclusive access to the Centre’s facilities during my event?

Only if you opt to hire the whole Centre. If you are only hiring one room (e.g., the Hall) then the other rooms may be hired out to another group and you will need to share the foyer, kitchen, toilets, car park, and so on.


Is the Centre wheel-chair accessible?

Yes, the Centre is all single-level with no internal steps. There is also a wheel-chair accessible toilet.
