I doubt 'random people' would get past the Reception Desk to be honest, other than for public events.

I think the ethos of this event was to raise awareness of the services available rather than a 'free for all stuff yourself with 'free' cake' type thing!

As much as I am into a "free for all stuff yourself with free cake type thing" I do have personal family reasons for finding out about the place and what they can do..picked up couple useful leaflets and hope to attend a particular course when it runs again. Unfortunately the gifty things they had for sale were tadge girly and I am no good picking gifts for wife..usually get it wrong. Judging by the service users I was chatting to and sharing a cake with it looks like a helpful place for many of them..
