Statement from Salford Diocese
Closure of English Martyr's Parish Centre.
We can advise that meetings between diocesan officials and representatives of the club committee were not able to conclude in favour of the club to reopen. The main reason is the cost of repairs required to make building both safe and weatherproof are beyond the resources available.
The diocese wishes to acknowledge it's thanks for the loyalty and effort of the officers, committee and staff over the years of this clubs operation in the service of the parish and the wider community.
Director of operations.
