The Parish has three spaces available for public hire, all with toilets and catering facilities.
The Parish Centre was built in the 1970s as a meeting place for St Michael’s church and the wider community. It consists of two rooms and is regularly used for meetings, children’s music groups, and parties. The fully-equipped downstairs kitchen includes a rope-driven service lift, giving easy transfer of food, plates, etc., between the two storeys.
The Memorial Hall is located on Branch Road, St Albans. It was built in 1925 to commemorate lives lost in World War I. With a raised stage and a capacity for 100 people, the hall is ideal for local activity groups, productions and children’s parties. This popular hall is hired by the community 7 days a week and is also the local Polling Station.
Our facilities include:
The Victorian Schoolroom to the rear of St Mary’s was originally used to educate workers and their children on the Childwickbury estate. It is a charming space, seating up to 25. The amenities consist of a galley kitchen with fridge and tea making facilities. There is an outside toilet. Currently the Schoolroom is in regular use by small groups and clubs wishing to pursue their hobbies of water colours, flower arranging, stamp collecting, etc. It is a good venue for parish quiet days.
