Welcome Back to Townsend House

It’s good to be taking bookings again after being out of action for so long.

This is to keep you up to date with current mid-Covid arrangements, and to remind you of the booking system.

To request a morning, afternoon or evening session please contact me via email, (preferred) or on 01643 81476

As before, keys should be collected on the Monday morning before your meeting and posted back through the letter box when you go.  As for payment, please leave a cheque with the steward on duty when you collect the keys.  If you could pay by BACS, that’s a very straightforward, and of course completely secure alternative – email me for the details.

Please sanitise your hands on arrival (gel is provided in the kitchen), wipe down the tables before you go, and be sure not to leave anything behind – papers, umbrellas, etc! Remember to turn off the lights and to lock up securely.  Do wear masks if you prefer, but that’s not a requirement.

Allowing for Covid regulations, the Main Room accommodates 12 people, and the Harbour Room 8.

It may be that not everyone is aware of the upstairs rooms, both light and pleasant, and quiet even with the windows open. The larger of the two takes up to 8 people, and the smaller library room is ideal for private, one to one meetings.  Access shouldn’t prove difficult for those with minor mobility problems.


The fees per session, (which of course include heating, lighting, wi-fi and use of the kitchen) are:

Main Room               £20

Harbour Room          £18

Upstairs Room          £15

Library Room            £10


With best wishes for a happy autumn of meetings.
