Important Works at the Centre
We are having some important work undertaken at the centre to resolve the issue of damp on the front wall of the entrance hall and cafe, improve the underfloor insulation and treat the cellar floor joists against woodworm. Most of the work has now been carried out. On 5th January the builders will install a ventilation unit in the cellar below the meeting room. We have agreed that the work in the cafe will be delayed until 14th - 16th February as it is half-term and the centre will be quieter again. We will do everything we can to minimise the disruption to groups and thank you for your patience and understanding. We will not be able to repaint the cafe wall for several weeks after the work.
We have been in touch with the groups affected and made alternative rooms in the centre available for them as necessary.
