Work has commenced on creating a new community/activity room at Moorends Community Centre.
The work forms the second phase of a programme of improvements, with phase 1 having been completed in 2013, which comprised improvements to the stage and provision of sound and lighting equipment.
The Council has been successful in securing a £10,000 grant from “Awards for All” to support these works, with a balance of £7,500 being funded by the Council.
The Council say the new facility will be created by converting a largely disused area that was previously used as a bar. Removal of this bar will create a useable space ideal for meetings and community activities. The area will be completely refurbished with the removal of the bar and a redundant storeroom, new doors, and replacement ceiling and lighting. The room will be properly separated from an adjacent kitchen, with improvements to fire protection. The kitchen will also be decorated.
It is anticipated that the works will take about 3 weeks. If any group or organisation is interested is hiring this space once the works are completed, please contact the Town Council office on 01405 818015.
