About St. Modwen

Changing places. Creating better futures.

St. Modwen is about transformation through better environments. 

Our history and expertise is bedded in the regeneration and renewal of spaces; taking on the challenges that others cannot and breathing life into places to create new and better opportunities; and adapting to changing times.

We seek to improve and enhance – with tangible and intangible benefits. Our aim is to ensure that what we create is appropriate and lasting. We think long term and deliver.

We transform, optimise and improve, turning spaces into places that benefit the people who live and work there. Our purpose is to give new meaning to those communities and environments we develop.

Kingsgrove Community Hall
Operation & Management Workshop

St. Modwen is inviting written Expressions of Interest (EOI) for the operation and management of Kingsgrove Community Hall, Wantage.

As part of the neighbourhood centre, St. Modwen will deliver a community hall, which will be for use as a community building incorporating children’s centre services, adult learning facilities, youth support services and provision for a community development worker.

A workshop was held for those interested in operating the community hall to discuss the latest design iteration, which has evolved from the agreed Neighbourhood Brief, and to inform EOIs.
