Link for Boothville

On arrival walk past the house as if going into the cul-de-sac and then walk along the edge of the perimeter fence there is a gate 2/3 of the way along which is the entrance to the Space .. as you come in be careful as there is a temporary slab until the weather improves to put the proper paving in.  Come up the steps and come into the Space.  On arrival please remove your shoes and place in the storage area.


We have had to place these restrictions due to our neighbours complaining so please try to support us so that they do not keep complaining to the Council … parking is available from the Windermere Way sign outside our property to the curb edge – see attached photo
There is one parking space on the drive – please use this … maximum of 3 spaces available … first come first served … please do not block the Ford S Max in on the drive as the needs access to and from the property at all times.
If you are being dropped and picked up please ensure that they do not sit with their car running.  Please also park in one of the designated spaces.
If you order a taxi please arrange of it to pick you up from outside the house.
Anyone who can offer another class member a lift and car-share would be helpful.
Coming by bus or walking please let us know so that you can gain access to The Space rather  than standing around outside.






For Well Woman Happy Baby classes it may be worth carrying your baby in a sling as space is limited.  There is no space for pushchairs unless you have a rain cover and then they can be left on the deck outside of the space.
