    Risk assessment
    Before using the building, hirers must carry out a risk assessment - to alert organizers and users to potential risks and how to control them. Hirers are responsible for carrying these out, but for guidance we have offered two documents below. The first is a simple ‘risk assessment starter’. The second offers more detailed guidance.

    Food hygiene
    Hirers planning to use the kitchen to prepare or heat food on the premises, other than making tea or coffee, must show us a Food Hygiene Certificate and also read and follow our Food Safety Management System, which you can download below. Otherwise, all food served must prepared off the premises.

    Where we work?

    According to the 2001 Census, in Jericho 28% of those working were self-employed, while 18% worked part time. Around 20% were in higher professional occupations compared with 14% for Oxford. We also tend to work nearby: 72% of people worked within five kilometres of their home; 18% went to work on foot, 13% by car and 6% by bike

    Where the name Jericho comes from?

    The name Jericho is probably taken from the parable of the Good Samaritan. Traditionally the name was given to places where travellers who arrived after the town gates had closed at sunset could find lodgings overnight.
