After a booking, please leave the centre as clean and tidy as you would wish to find it. Please mop up any spillages immediately and sweep up any debris and wipe dirty tables before storing. Please take away all rubbish and recyclable items. Please bring your own sacks. Chairs should be stacked correctly and safely, in the cupboard. We reserve the right to deduct the cost of cleaning up after untidy users from their deposit.
The gas-fired central heating is thermostatically controlled. Please do not alter or tamper with the controls, boiler or radiators and do not use any additional heating appliances. If you have any problems, contact the bookings secretary or any other member of the NEACA Executive Committee.
You are responsible for fire safety. Please familiarise yourself the positions of emergency exits and fire extinguishers. In the event of a fire, the first priority is to evacuate the building and call the fire brigade (there is a phone box at the entrance to the shopping centre car park). Please take every precaution to prevent fire and do not obstruct the emergency exits or lock the wrought iron gate at the entrance during your function.
