We feature the partly-built St Albans Community Centre on the front page of the August/September issue of St Albans News.It now has a roof and walls and the St Albans Residents Association, which managed the old centre for more than 17 years experience running a community centre will be doing it again from February 2021. St Albans is a hive of activity: the St Albans Skatepark is about to expand (in October). A former nurse at Calvary Hospital remembers times past and SARA celebrates St Albans Day with a picnic in the park. The road works have ramped up, apparently to get it all finished ASAP but it’s like living in a maze where we are marshalled with orange cones and no right hand turn signs, facing long trips to move from one part of the suburb to another. Walk to hospo outlets like Ristretto Cafe in Barbadoes St opposite St Albans Park, who have lost their street parking and are doing it tough, and enjoy a proper coffee.
