Shapps opens new Resolve premises
Last Friday, local MP Grant Shapps cut the ribbon at the official opening of the new Resolve service centre which is
based at the Woodhall Community Centre in the Peartree area of Welwyn Garden City.
Resolve is a local charity that supports people with alcohol and drug problems. It provides services free of charge on a
daily basis from Monday to Friday to anyone who wants to stop the cycle of drug or alcohol misuse. The new premises have given Resolve twice the space it had before and with its own entrance to the Community centre, it is now completely self-contained.
“The new centre means that we can offer a wide range of services in a way we have not been able to until now”, said Joe Heeney,
the manager of Resolve. Heeney paid tribute to the Hospitaller Order of Saint John of God which has supported Resolve, since it first
opened its doors in 2008, and has helped put the new centre together.
Opening the centre Grant said, “It is a great privilege to open Resolve’s new centre. It is a fantastic local charity, which provides a
valuable service to people in Hatfield and Welwyn Garden City. As patron, I have been incredibly proud to see how Resolve has grown in its four year history and I would like to pay tribute to everyone involved for their tireless work in its continuing success.”
