Our commitment to the local community has a long and proud history:


The Grosvenor family enjoys a long and proud track record of supporting its communities. 

The First Duke of Westminster gifted Grosvenor Park, the Grosvenor Museum, and Edgar's Field, in Chester, to local people in the second half of the 19th century. They all remain important community amenities today.

In more recent times, through the Westminster Foundation, which manages the philanthropic activities of the Grosvenor family and the Grosvenor Estate, we have supported the Storyhouse cultural centre in the city which houses a theatre, cinema and library; and helped deliver St Mary's Handbridge Centre, a community hub featuring meeting and activity rooms, a cafe and medical consultation room, which opened in 2018.

Today we remain actively involved in promoting local interests and issues by contributing our knowledge and expertise to a number of city, county and regional development groups.

We also continue to support local arts and culture, including exhibitions and events like ARK, which took place at Chester Cathedral in 2017 becoming the largest free to enter contemporary and modern sculpture exhibition ever held in the north west.
