Rooms available to hire across Suffolk

A social enterprise, which runs learning and development courses in Suffolk, is giving community groups and local businesses the chance to hire its rooms at learning centres located around the county.


Realise Futures Learning and Development delivers around 100 Ofsted-good graded courses for around 8,000 people aged 19+ every year from learning centres based inIpswich, Newmarket, Felixstowe, Lowestoft, Bury St Edmunds and Stowmarket.


In order to make full use of the rooms at its learning centres, Realise Futures is making them available for hire to local organisations and groups, and to businesses needing room hire for meetings.


Jos Laughlin, area delivery coordinator for Realise Futures Learning and Development said: "We run a whole range of different courses from our learning centres but, inevitably, there are days when the rooms are not being used. We felt that this was a service we could offer local groups and businesses if they needed somewhere to meet. 

"Rooms are available, when our learning and development courses are not taking place. However, there is plenty of opportunity to book ad hoc meetings, together with the option to book short, regular slots on certain days of the week. Most of our facilities have the added benefit of equipment hire and the option of tea and coffee and refreshments. All our rooms are of a very good standard and in very central locations."


She added: "If anyone is interested in finding out what rooms we have available, they can contact us on 0300 456 2050."
