After several years of fundraising, and lots of hard work, the building works are complete and we received the keys to our shiny, new sports hall at the end of 2014!

The sports hall is already proving to be a hit with residential and day visitors alike as it provides a large and versatile indoor space.

Providing seating for 190 people it's well suited to use as a large meeting/conference venues for groups.  Or perhaps you'd like to use it for indoor games/activities during your visit to the centre?

If you've got a residential or day visit at Carroty Wood coming up and are interested in finding out availability of the sports hall for your games or meetings please don't hesitate to give us a call on 01732 361361.
