Our hall is the community hub of the parish, and is also available to hire for those who would like to run classes, parties, or other private events.
The Saint Anthony of Padua Community Parish Hall is a spacious and light room measuring 14 x 8 metres. The hall is well maintained, with modern interior decor, central heating, lighting, double-glazed windows, and wooden flooring. The ceiling slopes from above the doors shown in the photo from 3 metres up to a maximum height of 5.5.metres. There is a dividing partition which can be pulled across to halve the floor space if two separate areas are needed.
There is a fully equipped kitchen (with a serving hatch through to the hall), with a double sink, fridge freezer, microwave and gas oven with hob. Limited crockery and cutlery are available if needed.
In a cupboard off the hall there are 20 tables and 80 chairs which are available for general use in the hall.
In addition to gender separated WCs the hall has a disabled toilet which houses a baby changing facility.
There is a hearing loop installed, and audio equipment is available with the facility to project onto a screen which can be erected in front of the serving hatch doors.
The hall is accessed from the outside through a separate entrance on the right side of the church. Car parking is generally available but the number of spaces will depend on concurrent church use and permit holders from the nearby hospital. Parking on nearby streets is limited but the hall has excellent access by local bus routes.
Current hire rates are £30/hour for “one off” use (such as parties), but for regular bookings (such as weekly classes) the hourly rate is £25/hour.
The hall is available for bookings at firstname.lastname@example.org
