The Peel Centre now has free Wi-Fi available for customers
The Management Committee has taken the decision to install a free Wi-Fi system for the use of customers, throughout the building. This was not straight forward as the thick stone walls and multiple electricity mains cicuits gave some transmission challenges. These have now been successfully overcome and there is now a strong signal in all areas. Instructions for connecting are on the notice boards in each room.

Hot Desk now available
With the installation of Wi-Fi, we are now able to offer a private office for hire with a desk, chairs and computer access to anyone wanting to work quietly away from their office or home.
