Brief History

No.2 Clarendon Street formerly known as the Gurdwara Sikh Temple had been owned by the Sikh community since the 1960’s and was the 1st Temple in Preston.

For decades, both, The Preston Muslim Society (PMS), Jamea Masjid Community at 18 Clarendon Street and the Sikh Community have been resident as neighbours, existing harmoniously next to each other and respecting each other’s faith.

In 2014 The Sikh Community decided to move to larger premises and as No.2 was surplus to their requirements they decided to sell the property. In doing so they had no hesitancy in offering first refusal of the site to their neighbours PMS Jamea Masjid. The Community of Jamea Masjid viewed this as a prime site with good potential at a fair market price. Alhamdullilah, with unanimous PMS Community support No.2 became the ownership of PMS Jamea Masjid Preston at the end of 2014.

The Future Use of the Site

Since 2015 The Executive Committee of PMS Jamea Masjid have been in discussion with respect to how best to utilise No.2 Clarendon Street to its full potential. A few options were tabled and external agencies were consulted to understand the need within Avenham/Frenchwood Community and the wider Community within Preston.

After much deliberation by The Executive Committee and the positive feedback provided of the property by external agencies, by The Grace of The Almighty, The EC unanimously agreed that there is a clear need of Nursery Facility around the area. The feasibility study conducted and supported by a Business Case made good business sense for the future of the site and PMS Jamea Masjid.

Therefore, since the autumn of 2016 plans were drawn up, work tendered out and the internal construction work of approx value £40k commenced to provide In Sha Allah a fantastic Nursery Facility for the future of our kids.

By The will of The Almighty, current plans are that No.2 Clarendon Street Nursery will be operational from January 2018.

Children are a great blessing from Allah. With their tender hearts, children can be moulded into righteous people only with a positive and tender approach. Islam considers children to be an amanah (trust) given to the family and says it is fard (obligatory) for the family to raise a child in a righteous manner.
