The hall is popular and well booked. The cottage, the former Child Health Centre, is an alternative venue for small meetings and groups, and is particularly suitable, and popular, for children's birthday parties. There is an adjoining children's playground with picnic shelter. The barbeques can only be operated when the Hall is booked. (BBQs are not available to cottage users).
