Hiring the Hall or Hut

Please email our Executive Committee:

Location

Our hut is at the end of Flamsteed Road, on the right. Flamsteed road is the first road on the right off Rustat Road, which is off Cherry Hinton Road near Hills Road Bridge and Cambridge Leisure Park. Click for a Google Map.

Accessibility

Our hut is accessible to all, regardless of ability, gender, sexual preference, race, religion or age. There is a ramp for wheelchair access at the front of the building and a disabled toilet. The toilets are for all and are not age or gender assigned. There are no steps or raised thresholds between areas in the building. Currently the fire escape has a raised threshold and a step down but we are looking into how to correct this. Accoustically the building has a significant echo which could give problems for hearing impaired but we are also looking into how to correct this too.

Conditions of Hire

A copy of our Standard Conditions for Use and our Hire Agreement can be downloaded by following the links.

Fire

There is a fire alarm. Make yourself aware of the fire exits at either end of the building and the fire extinguishers. The fire collection point is by the front gate. As the Stores may contain flammable and potentially dangerous materials the building should be evacuated in the event of a fire.

Utilities

Be aware of the utility access points. The electricity consumer unit is in the office; the water stopcock in the cleaning cupboard. Heating is by warm air vents in the main hall and is controlled in the office.

Chairs and tables are available, as are crash mats, on arrangement with the Exec.
