St Albans Mayor Officially Open’s our Latest Community Project

St Albans Cathedral, located minutes away from the Borras Head Office is the oldest site of continuous Christian worship in Britain and boasts the longest nave of any cathedral in England. As well as being a place of worship for more than 1700 years the Cathedral is also very active with the local community, providing various services and groups to the surrounding areas.

Borras recently aided the Cathedral’s cause and continued our commitment to the community by fitting a new kitchen (which was donated by Howdens) in their Crypt room, as well as the new kitchen, Borras painted the room from top to bottom, fitted 172 coat hooks and supplied a new dishwasher and boiling water unit. 

The Crypt is the closest thing the Cathedral have to a community hall and is heavily used for a number of activities, including:

  • Hosting around 16,000 school children a year whilst on school trips to the Cathedral
  • Meeting and activity space for the Abbey Tots, Brownies, Rainbows and Girl Guide groups associated with the Cathedral
  • Tea and Toasties, an after school club for under 12’s
  • Mother and children groups

Mayor Annie Brewster officially opened the kitchen together with Reverend Richard Watson who performed a short blessing ceremony beforehand.
