A PARTY is being held at a religious building which had to be repaired after a car crashed into it a year ago to the day.
The Stevenage Quakers’ home at the Friends Meeting House in Cuttys Lane, Stevenage, was damaged after a car went through the wall of the community facility on June 8, 2012. No one was hurt in the incident.
Exactly a year on, those who have helped rebuild the meeting house will be gathering tomorrow (Saturday) for a celebration, with groups who use the building setting up stalls and displays.
“It was a disaster at the time, but thanks to support from Quakers in the wider area, and a sympathetic architect and builder, we were able to turn it into a something really positive that expresses our values,” said Stevenage Quakers clerk Georgine Whiting.
“We are holding the party to say thank you to all those affected by the disruption for their patience and understanding, and we hope it will provide an opportunity for people to find out about all the great things that go on in this special building.”
