Our business hours are 9:00 am to 4:00 pm on weekdays. Bookings outside of these hours:

Return the key by putting it through the slot in the Main Neighbourhood Centre Reception Door or under the connecting internal door to reception immediately after your meeting.

Gates can be opened from the inside to allow exit and the front carpark gate opens automatically when a car is exiting. This code can be provided to you a few days before your booking if you require this for your participants. If you are a regular hirer you may be provided with your own unique code.
  • If using the data projector outside of hours, we request you provide your own laptop.
