There is an expectation of reasonable use of heat and lighting, limited cleaning materials and very limited disposal facilities.  Our hygiene target is moving ‘towards commercial standards’.

There are the usual toilet facilities including disabled access (with baby changing).

First aid facilities are limited.  Free WiFi for responsible users.  There is an emergency telephone and a large hand lamp for the Fire Marshal.
