Our preference is to be contacted by email at the moment rather than phone, as until we’re back to having 2 full-time workers, email makes it much easier for us to manage our time and tasks. Emails will usually be dealt with 5 days a week during the daytime at the moment, but this will increase to normal hours once we have recruited further staff.
Usual office hours 10am-12pm and 6pm-8pm
Email – for bookings and general enquiries – for suggestions and complaints, or to get involved as a worker, management committee member, or co-op member
Group – a “closed” group intended for women only, but obviously this can’t be guaranteed. Posts and comments are private within the group
Page – open to everyone for wider publicity purposes
