The Oasis is our main office complex and catering facility for service users and staff. From here the cahrity office manages all operations, nursery plant sales and finance. The community hall within the complex plays host to approximately 50 people daily for lunch and refreshment breaks and general get togethers for staff and service users. The community area has a kitchen operation which services the daily needs of everyone attending the nursery. We have a kitchen team with 3 service users daily gaining work experience in food preparation and hygiene.
The service users use the Oasis in the winter months as a community work area where they make craft and where we hold fairs to sell their products. It is where they learn songs for the Christmas singing which accompany the Christmas Fair. In the future we will expand this activity when our new facility has been built providing further learning and recreation space.
The kitchen at The Oasis is fitted to a high standard to provide catering for our daily numbers and the main function room is used for many events for the service users. The Oasis can seat 60 people at tables and when we have concerts in the Oasis we can seat 80 people without tables.
Available to Hire
The hall is a versatile space and would lend itself to the community for use for craft groups, classes, yoga sessions, children's parties, luncheons, receptions, and networking events.
