The Hall which was opened by Chris Cook, Chair of the Camphill Village Trust, will provide a range of facilities for over thirty people supported by the charity in St Albans. In his speech Chris said
"Camphill is about togetherness, friendship, mutual support, open opportunity and respect for the individual, helping people to change and develop. Michaelmas Hall provides the perfect venue for people to grow and move forward as individuals in close integration with their surroundings".
Situated in Sandridge Road, the lovingly redeveloped old ice cream factory, offers the opportunity for members of the Camphill community to come together and share meals, celebrations and festivals. It also provides welcome office space for community care and support team.
The Hall will also offer the opportunity for people to be involved in a variety of person centred activities within a purpose built environment and has been designed to meet the highest standards of safety and accessibility.
General Manager Nick Weames said, "The new building will represent a homely, safe and enriching facility for our residents and staff – one in which they can take a great source of pride, affection and enjoyment".
