    You can seek permission from the committee to consume alcohol on site (via your hiring agreement if you book), however, you will need a temporary licence from the council to sell alcohol on site.
  • Are we allowed a bouncy castle?
    Yes, however please note that some restrictions apply. They must be hired
    from a PIPA-accredited company (the inflatable play industry association), be used according to
    manufacturers instructions, and supervised by a responsible adult at all times
  • Do you recycle/provide waste disposal on site?
    Yes, we have the council provided glass recycling bins at the back of the car park. We do ask that ALL hirers remove waste from the building after any event to reduce the running costs of the centre.
  • What kitchen facilities do you have?
    There are two kitchens at the centre – a main kitchen between the hall and meeting room (with serving window access to both) and an additional smaller kitchen with a serving window to outside (next to the multi-use games area). Mugs, plates, cutlery and some basic utensils are provided but the kitchens are not fully equipped for food preparation
  • Can we bring/prepare food?
    You are more than welcome to bring your own, prepared food to the site and we have a basic stocked kitchen. We also have a microwave and oven for food reheating. We would advise that you bring anything you think you need so that you aren’t left unprepared!
  • What are the parking facilities?
    We have spaces for up to 52 cars, plus 4 marked disabled bays and 2 minibus bays. Hirers are asked to avoid parking in the streets around the centre. Plenty of cycle parking is provided at the Centre.
  • When can we use the sports pavilion/facilities?
    We don’t know. We are working with the council to take over the running of these as soon as they are complete, however, as soon as we know, we will communicate this to everyone using our many social networking links!
