Should you wish to order food for your events, you will be expected to make your own arrangements for ordering and delivery.  If required we can suggest some local suppliers.  Alternatively, there are several sandwich shops and small cafes located on Falsgrave Road which are readily accessible during breaks to purchase lunch.


The use of the kitchen adjoining the meeting room is included, as is crockery, cutlery and washing up facilities, although other users of the building may need to use the kitchen at the same time.  If you need to dispose of food or a large amount of rubbish, please use the green or blue bins located at the back of the building outside the DAR staff tearoom.  Please ensure all food is bagged and recycled items placed in the blue bin.


Domestic Arrangements and Additional Charges


All users of the meeting room area will be asked to leave the room in the same condition they found it in.  In the event of excessive cleaning or deliberate/unreasonable damage, additional charges will be made to cover the cost of cleaning or replacing the goods or property.  Please ensure all crockery and cutlery used is washed, dried and put away.


Interactive Whiteboard


The use of the projector and interactive whiteboard can be requested on the booking form.  It may be necessary to download and install a small program to access the full features of the board.  The connection for the Whiteboard is VGA so please bring any adaptor needed to connect to the projection system.
