A decision was taken a number of years ago that in order to maintain the fabric of the building the centre would be rented out to other groups, the income from this would help to pay for the up keep of the building. Clearly this is a balancing act since by having additioal users it adds to the wear and tear of the building and requires more cleaning. The design of the building means that it is only suitable for certain types of groups, for example there is very limited room for storage. At the current moment in time the room is being hired out to the maximum.
