Travel Directions and Parking
Parking and Assembly are at Newent Community School and Leisure Centre, Watery Lane. Please ensure that you turn right on entry through School gate as they have asked us not to park to the left. Assembly will be in the Pavilion where we will have the use of showers, and toilets. Hot and cold drinks will be available there. Follow initial signs to the Leisure Centre towards the rear of the School, then take slope on the right to the Pavilion. If you are approaching from all directions, please use the turning into Newent at the traffic lights at the junction of the B4221 and B4215/B4216 Taking B4216 proceed down the hill towards the town centre and take the first road on the right which is Watery Lane. Carry on until you see the School on your left hand side, turn in through the main gate. Please be aware that there may also be other people using the car park, on the day, such as members of the Leisure Centre, or other sporting activities. It is half term so the School itself will not be in session. Parking is free.
