Those of you who live locally may have noticed the barriers and signs going up around the old All Hallows’ vicarage during the last few weeks and you may have wondered what is happening.
The old vicarage is owned by St George’s Crypt and has been run as a “wet house” for many years with the aim of “encouraging them to cut down on alcohol consumption and gain control of their lives, whilst improving their physical and emotional well-being.” They now plan to redevelop the site to provide flats as part of their support for helping to get people back onto their feet. The old vicarage is due to be demolished in the near future. It will be sad to see it go!
If you have any memories of the old All Hallows’ vicarage when it still owned by the church do please share them with us.
