St Mary's Handbridge Centre


Opening of exciting new Centre in Handbridge

 
On Sunday, 10th June, the Right Revd Dr Peter Forster, the Bishop of Chester, will officially open the new St. Mary’s Handbridge Centre, a long awaited community hub serving the needs of Handbridge and beyond. 


 
 
The new facility replaces the old church hall, and is over twice the size of the former building. Comprising a large hall, two community rooms, a small meeting room, and an outdoor seating area, the Centre will be available for hire and use by the whole community. Facilities include a fully equipped kitchen, a refreshment and social area, disability access, a secure pre-school play area, and full state of the art projection facilities.

Members of the public are warmly invited to come and view the Centre and its facilities between 16:30 and 18:00 on Sunday, 10th June. 

St Mary’s is extremely grateful to all those organisations and individuals who have contributed and worked tirelessly over the past three years to see this project become a reality.
