GENERAL GUIDELINES FOR USE OF THE SPACE

Amenities
Our space is attractively furnished and in a great location, near shops and cafes on Route 110 in Westford. We have plenty of parking. A 32-inch TV screen with DVD player and laptop hook-up is available for use in our group space by arrangement, and we have password-protected wifi. We have a hot/cold water dispenser, cups, and tea in our waiting room. Also a kitchenette with microwave and small fridge, and two restrooms. Directions are on our home page.

Air quality
This is a non-smoking space.
In deference to individuals with allergies, we request that you refrain from excessive use of scented candles, incense, smudges, aromatherapy oils, perfume, and so on.

Candles
When using candles, please use extreme care: Candles should be lit only when there is someone present in the room. Make sure candles are in a glass container to prevent spilling hot wax, and, if possible, place the container on a saucer (a cloth mat does not protect the surface underneath from hot wax). Please be careful when moving a candle that has just been extinguished -- it takes time for the pool of melted wax to cool and harden. Take extra care with pillar candles; place them on a platter or tray for stability.

Noise
Because we are located near other businesses, our premises are not suitable for loud activities. Condo rules apply.

Children
Children may not be left unattended at any time. Each practitioner is responsible for enforcing this rule with their clients or class participants.

Networking area
Flyers, brochures, and business cards must be approved by Edith Griffin before being displayed.

"Leave it as you find it or better"
Renters are responsible for maintaining their offices and the shared spaces in a clean, orderly condition. If your activities generate a significant volume of trash, you are responsible for removing it to the dumpster at the rear of the building. Please report any dirt or untidiness left by a previous user. If you moved furniture around for your use, please restore it to its original arrangement.

Closing up
The last person to leave is responsible for turning off lights and white-noise machines, adjusting the thermostat appropriately, making sure faucets are off, and locking up. We have a laminated instruction sheet in the group space, to help you attend to all the closing-up tasks.

GROUP SPACE - Room 6:

Our group space can be rented either for occasional workshops or on an ongoing basis - for classes, seminars, meetings, and so on. It also works great for festive but not too rowdy parties such as a baby shower (plan on bringing your own balloons and streamers!).

Ongoing rent rates are based on the use always being at the same time in the week. NOTE: At present, the room is available only Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

The space measures approximately 17' X 25'. We have available three conference tables and two smaller tables, 24 folding chairs with cushioned seats, and 18 backjacks. A 32-inch TV screen with DVD player and laptop hook-up is available for use, by arrangement. We have wall-mounted whiteboard measuring approximately three feet high by eight feet long.

Rent rates are as follows (may be negotiable depending on type of activity):

For occasional use:
$35 per 2-hour block
$45 per 3-hour block
$12 per hour for 4 or more hours in a day
(maximum $100 per day)
