Linslade’s Richard Fox is opening a recently refurbished flexible space for the local community to hire and use for a wide variety of recreational activities.

The old Methodist Church on Mentmore Road which dates back from the early 1940s, and has had many uses from a dance hall, a church and even a factory in the Second World War. The newly named The Recreation Rooms, has been renovated and refurbished with a small army of volunteers painting, knocking down walls and recyling parts of the old church pulpit, transforming it into the new reception desk.
