Subject: [community centres] Urgent: Community Centres Hiring Opportunities Draft Questionnaire

Hi all

At the last meeting we had with Poppy Thomas of the Council it was agreed to try to publicise Centres who are looking to hire out space to groups. Also a number of groups regularly contact the Council or the Bridge Trust seeking information on where to book rooms for their activities.

To make this process easier for all concerned, we agreed to draft up a Hiring Opportunities Questionnaire for all Centres to fill in (see my Draft Questionnaire below - PLEASE CHECK). At the same time the Council has drafted a Hiring Needs Questionnaire for groups seeking to hire venues to fill in regarding their needs (see the second Draft at the end - FOR YOUR INFO).

Please check the first Draft below (the one for each Centre to fill in) to make sure there's nothing important I have missed out!

Can you get back to me with any proposed amendments by Wednesday 5pm?
