St Martin's begins renovation

September 26 2009
At last, the ambitious £34 million plan is starting to come to life On the cards for several years, The Connection at St Martin's, the old Social Care Unit on Trafalgar Square, is at last beginning a multi-million pound reconstruction of its premises. The market has closed above the day centre and soon excavation will begin to replace the day centre with purpose built facilities, and a visitors' centre for the church. Details of what will replace the day centre are available in the church, including how the £34 million will be spent there. Much of the development will be directly relating to improving what the church offers its many visitors. Its loss will be felt by many who will miss the dependability of shelter the steps by the church have represented. But, services will continue next door at No. 12 Adelaide Street with the under 26s' service. We will look more closely at the redevelopment of St Martin's and what it promises in a future issue.
