Close to the entrance to the farm and also housing our administration team, the Aquila Centre has a large room available for rent for running a variety of courses.
The Aquila Centre building is of a unique and pleasing design, built using environmentally friendly straw bale construction, and offers a warm and welcoming atmosphere. A disabled toilet and simple refreshment facilities are available, with car parking for around 15 cars in the main car park area and a flat level access from the car park to the building.
The room is well equipped with heating, lighting, flexible furniture arrangements including a large table, chairs, flipcharts, blackboards, etc. Audio visual equipment can be arranged. The building has toilet and simple refreshment facilities.
If you would like to offer a course for the local community which fits our broad learning themes of sustainability, farming, food, arts and crafts, please contact our lifelong learning coordinator, Georgina Woodward on 01202 854762. We will be happy to negotiate on room rents in return for places on courses.
