St George's Church Community Room



Book the Community Room

The Community Room has recently opened, after five years of fund raising by the Friends of St George's Church.  It offers a bright airy meeting room with comfortable seating for up to 48 people.  There is access for the disabled, two toilets, one of which is accessible for wheel chair users, and a small but well equipped kitchen which may be used by hirers at no extra cost.  The room is available for regular club activities, occasional meetings, children's parties and other celebrations.    There will be limited parking spaces on site and the village car park is approximately 200 yards away. The use of the building is permitted between 9.30am and 10.00pm on Mondays to Saturdays and between 9.30am and 5.00pm on Sundays and Public Holidays. Sunday bookings will only be taken when the church is not in use.
