Longfield Community Centre

Located in the heart of the Longmeadow Estate, these premises have the flexibility to offer something to everyone. The facility is managed by the Bookings Team, from within the Civic Centre, yet is not staffed daily. Managing the facility this way ensures the lowest possible cost for hiring the venue out to users. This is a "Community Centre", so keeping the costs low is essential for community groups!
The Centre is available for all types of functions and offers the privacy of the lounge for meetings, conferences and small social groups, through to large party and wedding functions in the main hall. The hall also lends itself to sporting activities and playgroups.
 
Internet access can be made available with prior arrangement from our team, but no other presentation facilities are available.
 
There is ample free parking to the side of the building, level floor access and a convenient local bus service that stops outside.
 
The centre consists of two main areas available for hire. The large hall (14m x 12m) with its recently re-varnished hall floor and clean white walls with blue trim is suitable for any function up to 90 persons seated for dinners, or 120 persons for dancing. Seats and folding tables are available in the area for users to set up however they like. Attached to this area is a well-equipped kitchen area, with ovens, gas hobs, water boiler and refrigeration. No crockery or cutlery is available and would require the hirer to bring their own.

The Lounge
The second area available for hire is the Lounge. This room can comfortably sit 24 boardroom style, for which tables are already set up this way. Again, the tables in this area can be folded away, which allows this room to be used for other purposes.

Main Hall - £9.50 +VAT (per hour)
Lounge - £9.50 +VAT (per hour)  
Kitchen Charge - £6.25 + VAT (per session)

Studley Green Community Centre

The Community Centre on the estate is run by a group of committed volunteers, and is similar in both interior design and room size to our Longfield Community Centre. The Chair is Paul Ivory and the Secretary is Maryrose Mantle. The centre is popular and available to every part of the community for events such as parties, concerts, meetings and fayres. 
    Hire charges are currently £17.50 an hour, which includes use of the kitchen. There is availability for both "one-off" and longer-term hire for groups and organisations, as well as individuals. Longer-term hirers usually attract a concessionary rate, details of which are available on request.
