The St John's Centre, Hills Road

** Due to the new national lockdown, the St John's Centre is closed to all but essential community functions **

On 28th September we opened the new St John's Centre in Hills Road. After six months of building works the old community rooms have been transformed. There is a brand new kitchen, new toilets catering for the disabled and families, a new garden courtyard with cloister roof, new flooring in the main room, a new porch for the front entrance and electric self opening doors to facilitate wheelchair access.


The St John's Centre has now reopened for bookings. Detailed COVID-19 safety guidance is in place, and all hirers must agree to comply with this. They must also produce their own risk assessment and must ensure that their group wears face-masks and practises social-distancing.
