Please note that it is essential for any group or individual that wishes to use any of the Church's accommodation to contact the Booking Secretary on 07437 353 109. This is to avoid inadvertent double booking of the same room.

When organising a meeting can you please ensure that the Bookings Secretary is made aware of the date & time, particularly if the meeting takes place in the evening. If the meeting is to take place in a room on the lower floor please also advise Wendy, manager of the pre-school. Will the organiser of such meetings  please arrange for the rooms to be left in the state in which they were found - clean & tidy & ready for the next user.

Please help with economies by ensuring lighting & heating are not left on when not required.

Please ensure all food waste, including teabags, are disposed of at the end of the meeting. (There is a black bin near the Linburn Road entrance that can be used for this purpose). Other waste will be disposed of by the Premises Steward on a regular basis.

There is a plastic box in the kitchen that is reserved for used glass and plastic bottles only. Please do not use it for discarded plastic bags, or broken glass or ceramics. 

Thank you,
