We are pleased to let you know that we are a step closer in getting our hoped-for community hub at the Marlborough Pavilion site in Sopwell.

A planning application for the project is due to be submitted by St Albans District Council next month, with the proposed building including “a main hall of 100 square metres, a café, a kitchen suitable for providing event catering and Changing Places toilets. There will also be wudu wash facilities for members of the Muslim community to carry out ablutions before prayer and a multi-faith quiet room for anyone to use for personal reflection or prayer.” These are alongside a cycle hub and outside improvements to the local BMX track.
