Some venues have them as well. We should at least assemble information on which venues have them on-site, and regions can then assess the economic case for buying or renting to cover any gaps.

Useful. So for Wellington, there’s one at Brookfields, one at Brooklyn Community Centre, and one over the road from Petone Community House. Vogelmorn Hall is the only regular venue which lacks one.
