Hirers are reminded that there may be more than one group in the building at the same time.This should be taken into account when planning refreshment or meal breaks so as to avoid congestion in the kitchen.To reduce congestion, large groups are requested to use the trolley to transport food and drinks to the meeting room hired and not send all participants to make their own drinks.
