This beautiful state-of-the-art building is an excellent example of partnership working between statutory and voluntary groups which will benefit the whole community."

The new centre consists of a main hall, two games rooms, office and toilet facilities, with the Main Hall offering a facility suitable for a wide range of activities and initiatives designed to improve the health and wellbeing of local residents.

It will be managed by Kitty's Road Community Association through a Facility Management Agreement with the council.
