Drink stations: These are located throughout with a supply of hot water, drinking water, boiling water plus a larder fridge.
Vending machines: There is a hot drinks vending machine and a food vending machine in the main break out areas in the Annex and HQ.
Fridges: Those provided by us will be cleaned once per week by catering staff; any items which are past the use by date will be disposed of during this process for hygiene purposes. Food in personal good containers will be removed after one week, thereafter it will be stored for one week. Any containers not claimed will be disposed of. Fridges provided by a department will not be cleaned by facilities staff.
Dining area: You are encouraged to use these areas to have lunch and breaks. Eating at workstations is discouraged.
Crockery: You are requested to provide your own equipment for dining, which can be kept in y our personal storage area. This helps ensure a clean workspace for all staff and avoids a build up of unwanted and dirty crockery. Crockery left in cupboards and work surfaces will be removed on Fridays to avoid redundant items building up.
Microwaves: These are available for staff to use in the dining areas. To avoid smells spreading through the building it is requested that strong smelling foods are not heated. Please wipe out the microwave after use to leave it in a clean state for the next user.
Boiling water taps: These are the taps by the round stainless steel draining areas. There is a safety button on the tap which is found at the front, above the spout. Press the small red button at the front of the tap, above the spout, at the same time as pressing the red panel at the top of the tap - boiling water will then flow.

- Sandwich lunches can be booked and must be for a minimum of 10 people.
