Hall Toilets Upgrade
As from Monday 2nd July 2018, the ladies and gents toilets in the ground floor lobby will be work areas during upgrade and therefore out of use for 4 weeks. The cloakroom opposite will be used as a storage area. In the interest of safety we kindly ask that parents make sure their children are aware that this area is out of bounds during this period. The halls will be in use as normal. Please use the toilets behind the stage or on the top floor . Apologies for noise and dust during normal work hours. Your patience is appreciated while this modernisation takes place. New toilets should be in use from 30th July.
