Bombed during World War II, St George’s Garrison Church survives as an evocative ruin with recently conserved mosaics, and a modern canopy roof, now available for all to enjoy.


Connect Play Session in the sun

On 18th May we loved welcoming pre school kids with their parents and later school age pupils to play and run around our secure space. The children brought good appetites for our free cakes and other goodies, and drank soft drinks.

It was a warm and sunny day, enhanced by the sound of children playing while parents took the opportunity to mingle and chat.

Our fortnightly Wednesday Connect sessions - free entry, games and refreshments - continue over the summer months - check the website for dates.
