The Friar Park Millennium Centre is a thriving community centre in the heart of Wednesbury’s Friar Park area. It provides a range of activities and facilities for local community use. 

The Friar Park community will grow over the next 10 years with more than 700 new homes being built in the immediate area; 630 of these to be located on the Friar Park Urban Village site (immediately north of the Millennium Centre).   

This project aims to address the concerns raised by residents around the capacity of the Friar Park Millennium Centre, to meet the needs of the existing and new community. 

The project will involve reconfiguring the existing floorplan and creating an extension to accommodate the space needed for the centre to offer diverse services for more people. This includes helping people to improve skills. 

Since this project started, the Millennium Centre now hosts Sandwell Council Youth Service activities and a Job Club started in March 2024. For more information about what’s going on at Friar Park Millennium Centre visit: Friar Park Millennium Centre | Wednesbury | Facebook 

 Get involved: 

A community information event will be held in Spring 2024 sharing details of the building changes.

Details of this will be shared as soon as possible.
