Youngsters from Manor Park Primary and Nursery helped to launch the official start of work yesterday on the new £2.66million Lord Provost Henry E Rae Community Centre.
They were joined at the sod-cutting ceremony by members of the community from the centre, which is having a complete refurbishment and extension to provide purpose-built accommodation for community groups and charities.
The new building will help the centre be even more of a hub for the community as the new facilities will make such a difference to groups who use it.
Partner organisations which will be housed at the centre are Middlefield Community Project, Lord Provost Henry E Rae Community Centre Management Committee and NHS Healthy Hoose.
These partner organisations provide vital services to the residents of Middlefield and the surrounding area, and it’s fantastic to see how excited they are about the new facilities.
We’re looking forward to work progressing at the site and then welcoming the community in and using the centre when it’s finished.
