St John’s has bought The Red Lion pub,150 years after the church first made Marstons an offer for the site, and plans to convert it into a new community centre for the church and the wider local community.
There will be three meeting rooms of different capacity, a kitchen serving direct into the large meeting room, toilets and storage space.
We had a starting fund from the sale of the old hall, and work started on Red Lion House in February 2017.
Using the funding available the following work has been done:
Roof repairs carried out.
Unstable side extension removed
New side extension built
Internal walls removed and new walls built according to plans
Ground floor levelled
Upstairs floor removed and replaced with a floor of one level
More funding is needed to complete the ground floor area so it can be used. Grants have been applied for, and fundraising events organised.
