Due to our on-going restrictions due to the pandemic, our fire station meeting rooms are currently unavailable for use by community groups and external agencies. This is being reviewed on a regular basis and we hope to reopen them for bookings as soon as we can.
Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service is committed to helping the communities it serves and recognises that its premises are located at the heart of those communities. We are therefore offering the meeting rooms at many of our stations for use by community groups and external agencies.
Preference will be given to groups who:
- contribute to community safety and give access to partnership working
- have the potential to share fire safety and/or road safety messages to the wider community, such as providing referrals or equivalent prevention activity
- offer direct support to charitable organisations
- contribute to delivering the Service’s strategic priorities, as set out in the Community Safety Plan.
In the interest of fairness, the maximum duration for any repeat booking shall be for three months.
Our premises will not be used by any group or organisations who seek to charge and profit from the events held on our premises. You may be referred to the Station Manager in charge of the premises to discuss this further if there is any doubt in the intended use.
