We are keen to hire out the rooms, especially for new activities to Cottenham or for meetings or training or for parties (the coffee shop can provide food) so if you would like to hire one of our 3 rooms (main hall, Studio (upstairs) or coffee shop, to book. The hall is available some afternoons to book. You are now able to check bookings (and classes) by looking on the website at Function Rooms and then the room and looking for the date.

We are actively looking for new volunteers. If you would like to volunteer in the coffee shop, or with administration, meet people and improve your skills, do get in touch by replying to or phoning 01954 202109
