The Sherriff Centre at St James
The Sherriff Centre is based at St James Church and is a unique initiative of which we are very proud.
Back in 2012 the local Post Office in West Hampstead was going to close and as local residents we didn’t want to see our community without a local and easily accessible Post Office.
So St James Church Council offered to host a new Post Office and as the plans developed we added a Cafe, Stationery shop, florist and children’s playcentre to the plans. The Sherriff Centre at St James is now a unique destination – combining a full Branch Post Office open six days a week (8.00am-6.00pm) with a range of other exciting community facilities – and it is warm and busy every day. The children’s Soft Play facility is particularly popular with local families.
All the profits from the various activities in the Church are put to good use by the Sherriff Centre Charity which has been established to work in our local community supporting families, older people and particularly through the provision of debt advice services.
We highly recommend that you pay us a visit – the coffee is good and strong, the cake is delicious and the atmosphere is wonderful.
