Wolvercote Young People’s Club – daytime tenant needed

Our long-term daytime tenant is leaving and this fabulous space in St Peter’s Road, Wolvercote, OX2 8AU is now available for a sub-tenancy between the hours of 8.00 – 4.30 weekdays. (The county council is our landlord.)

The building would suit a charity, sports club or not-for-profit running day time activities or classes for your clients. You would get a fully serviced building with lovely grounds, including a sports ‘cage’, car parking, equipped kitchen, small office (two workstations), sports hall, meeting room, which could provide further office space, and chill-out areas. See photos and further details of the space and rooms on our website: www.wolvercoteypc.org.uk
