Viva! – Car parking at the Silver Band Hall

Car parking: we now have permits to use part of the Youth Centre car park (grass/tarmac behind the Band Hall) as long as we display a permit and comply with a number of conditions.
On evenings we are in the Community Room we cannot use the parking adjacent to the larger Band Hall and we need to seek on street parking.
