PUBLISHED: 16:00 04 September 2017
Building work on a new community centre has finally finished and who better to give the initial thumbs up, than members of the community.
The Sapphire Jubilee Community Centre in Bolberry Road, Collier Row, was open for a family fun day on Friday where residents were able to take a look around for the very first time.
The building - which is carbon neutral and partly powered by solar panels - includes a large hall for events, is fully accessible for those with disabilities and will have Wi-Fi.
A play area for children has also been created next to the building.
Cabinet member for housing, Councillor Damian White, said: “The pre-fabricated design of this centre meant we started work in May and the building was completed by the end of August.
“We already have several community groups interested in meeting there and we are looking forward to this eco-friendly community centre being put to good use by local residents and community groups.”
