Notes:All furniture & facilities at the Downswood community centre is used at the hirers & their guests own risk. Do not use any furniture or facilities if it is broken or damaged. Adult dark grey chairs will not stack with adult light grey chairs, that’s why we store them in different places. (Just one of life’s mysteries I guess)! Do not stack adult plastic chairs more than five high, they could fall over & cause injury. Please do not allow anyone to drag chairs, especially stacks of chairs or tables across the floor, use the trolley. If any furniture is found dirty, broken, damaged or is not stored away correctly after your hiring, we shall employ someone to clean & store away this furniture, or replace damaged furniture with money from your special deposit.







Please note: We have CCTV throughout the centre for security & free WIFI for our guests.
