WHAT WE INHERITED.....
AL-MARYAM selected one run-down premises, a CHURCH closed since December 2009 [at least] and started working on it for community use. It was being used by delinquent youngsters for drug consumption and as a rubbish-dump.
It required extensive repairs as there was no power, no water, no gas, no doors, no toilets, no flooring, ruined driveway, boundary-walls nearly non-existing – in short it was only a structure of bricks & mortar. It was:
St Paul Church, Winchester Ave, STOKE ON TRENT ST2 0LL
BUT in what condition we got it - see some images below:
