Rooms To Let - An Updte!
We've long been able to make a suite of rooms available for community groups and businesses to meet at Knox. Two complications have arisen recently.
The first complication is that much of the Knox Centre is being earthquake strengthened - with the Committee Room, the Hall and the Chapel not available for hire probably until the end of 2020. The good news is that the church, the Lounge, the kitchen, the old foyer and the new foyer are still available for hire.
The second complication is that at the moment all gatherings in our buildings must operate in keeping with the government's Covid-19 containment protocols - so hirers will need to demonstrate to us that proper physical distancing, cleaning, and contact tracing practices will apply to the hirer's events. That's just a function of our times.
Please just check in with Jane, and she'll give you good advice about meeting space availability - Ground floor rooms and toilets fully accessible to the disabled.
