The building is at the corner of Dromore Road and Garden Street and is adjacent to the Medical Centre and the Primary School. The building was formerly used as the Gatehouse School, and in 1985 it was taken over by the local community.
The building has recently undergone major refurbishment and provides space for a wide range of community events, for use by community groups and for meetings.
The building contains 4 corner rooms, each approximately 27 ft x 19 ft . For the foreseeable future 2 of these rooms, the Bunker (room 1) and the Snooker Room (room 5), are likely to be sub-let on a long term basis. Another corner room is currently laid out as a Meeting Room (room 3) with large tables in the middle of the floor. The last room is known as the Lounge (room 4). The Meeting Room and Lounge are currently bookable, subject to availability, with the charge being £10 per hour.The main hall has a usable space of 53 ft x 20 ft and is also bookable at £12 per hour.
To make a booking please call in to Franca Bruno's shop opposite the car park entrance, or phone the shop on 07707 686109 during business hours.
