Allenton Big Local’s plan to fund the development of a community hub at St Martin’s Methodist Church on Flint Street have been approved. 

The creation of a centrally located community venue was highlighted as a priority during consultations with residents on how Big Local funding should be spent. Once completed, the community hub will include a café that can become a meeting place for local people. St Martin’s will also offer room facilities for hire at the venue for local groups and residents to use for activities such as children’s parties, meetings, training sessions, playgroups, youth clubs, keep fit sessions, drama clubs, and other community events.
