  • Open the front flap of the key safe from the top (hinged at the bottom)
  • Rotate dials to select access code
  • Depress two buttons (one each either side of key safe) to release door to key safe
  • Remove key
  • Close door to key safe
  • Scramble dial to hide access code

The heating is set to a timer and is included in the hire fee along with plug-in elctrical items and the AV equipment. Additional heating is provided by the wall heaters which are operated by a coin meter (£1 and £2 coins) located on the left as you enter the hall. If you use the wall mounted heaters, please check the meter reading before you exit the hall and top it up to the original level.
