Council Building Re-decoration

Due to extensive re-decoration of the whole building, being undertaken to make the building more attractive to members of the public to use, the building will have to be closed from 13 May to 7 June. Unfortunately this will mean our current user groups won’t be able to use the building for meetings and activities during this time. The library room will be closed at a later date and we will let you know exact closure dates as soon as possible. We apologise for this inconvenience, but we hope that the re-decoration will improve the visitor experience!
