We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those that have supported the Norton Community Trust and the project to adapt the former church of St Andrew as a community hub.  As you’ll have seen from the regular Newsletters –, since the initial community consultations about the Hub in 2018 and 2019, progress with the project has been slower than we had hoped. However, we have made some significant steps forward over the last few months, particularly with the grant of the planning consents. 

The Hub website will keep you up to date on any progress and here you can find more details about what has been achieved to date, and plans for the future.

We are now ready and able to accelerate progress with the project.

To support this, we want to once again encourage members of the Norton community to get actively involved in the project.  As we’ve said numerous times in the Newsletter, community involvement is absolutely key if we are to achieve our twin aims of preserving the heritage of the former church building and providing a much-needed community base for Norton residents.

This is an appeal to you to consider how you might be able to convert your support for the project into active involvement.  Please don’t be daunted by this request – if you’re not in a position to do anything more at present, that’s fine. But we would really appreciate it if you will consider more actively involvement in one of the following ways:

  • By volunteering your time, skills or experience to help with the detailed planning of how the community hub will operate, and how it can best be used. You can register your interest to help on the volunteering page –
  • By helping to finance the ongoing fixed costs of running the building (estimated £550 monthly) for an initial period of twelve months while the development work is under way. The best way to do this is by making a fixed monthly contribution to fund these costs – the amount can be simply whatever you can afford, Single contributions will also be appreciated.

Making contributions is easy, just click on the ‘donate’ button below. If you do need help, then click on the Help Guide, which will take you through the process step by step.

If you prefer to make a contribution to the NCT in cash or by direct bank transfer, please send us a message using the Contact page –

If you have any questions about the community hub project or how you can help, please contact us – email

Thank you for your continued support for the Community Hub project.

The Norton Community Hub project is managed by the Presteigne and Norton Community Trust, which is a registered charity No: 1195888
