Morrisons in Netherfield is to offer free meeting spaces to local community groups.
The retail giant’s latest initiative is designed to help community groups in the area deal with the increasing cost of booking meeting spaces in local centres, after its research revealed that local groups typically spend up to £20 an hour on meet up spaces.
The hour-long bookings available within the store’s café will be free of charge.
Helen Tordoff, head of cafes at Morrisons, said: “We’ve seen more groups use our café spaces as meet up areas so we’re delighted to formalise the offering and make it even easier for local communities to come together over a cup of tea and great food.”
Meet up areas will be available in Morrisons cafés between 9am until 11 am and 2pm until café closing every weekday.
To book a meet up area slot, groups can email their local Morrisons Community Champion with bookings taken on a first come first serve basis.
