Reason #2 for going to the SPUC youth conference

#2 The Venue

Hayes Centre
 1) In recent years the International Youth Conference has migrated south, having been held in Scotland for a number of years. Last year it moved to Rotherham, and now to Swanwick, Derbyshire, for 2013. We want as many as possible to come, and holding it in a more central location will hopefully mean less time and money on trains, cars, and coaches, for more people. Please remember to use your student card to get discounted travel rates when booking your transport.

All bedrooms are en-suite
 2) Every attendee will have a modern and comfortable twin or single en-suite bedroom. Rooms have views of the grounds and gardens. All en-suite rooms have bathroom suite, towels and soap, tea and coffee making facilities and a hairdryer. All have exceptionally high standards of décor and furnishings. Some bedrooms are designed for delegates with disabilities, including adapted doors and space for wheelchair users, the provision of alarm pull-cords and specially designed showers and bathroom suites.

You can have this every morning! Om nom!
 3) The Hayes offers a fully catered package comprising of continental and cooked breakfast, mid morning coffee (served with biscuits), a prearranged choice of hot or cold lunch dishes, afternoon tea with fresh homemade cakes and a three course evening meal. Refreshment breaks are served in areas where delegates can relax between sessions, whether this is outside in the beautiful gardens or in one of the many lounge areas.

Not the actual bar, but you get the idea ;-)
  5)  A staffed Bar is available, offering a large range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic refreshments at reasonable prices, including many draught beers and spirits. The bar will be a nice area to relax and chat after dinner on Friday and Saturday, and we'll have the bar open for drinks before dinner on Saturday evening.

 6) The Hayes has beautiful grounds for a morning stroll, a post-lunch wake-up walk, or for a relaxing drink and chat with friends in the evening. There is outdoor seating, a large pond with wildlife, and several small gardens dotted about.
