Refurbished community centre to reopen for bookings

Manor Park Community Centre is due to reopen in the coming weeks following refurbishment works.

The centre in Villiers Road has been upgraded, with new windows, kitchen floors and toilet facilities installed.

The council held a consultation in the Manor Park area in 2017 to find out what community facilities residents would like to see in their local area. A key area of feedback was for more space to hire for community events, parties and meetings.

The first phase of work involved the refurbishment and opening of the new community facility Manor Park Pavilion and expansion of the nursery at Manor Park Community Centre. This was completed last year.

James Swindlehurst, leader of the council and cabinet member for regeneration and strategy, said: “We are extremely pleased to be delivering this refurbishment for our residents working from their own suggestions of what is needed in their area. This is the next phase of the Manor Park redevelopment plan to complement the new Manor Park Pavilion and the expansion of the nursery. I look forward to seeing residents enjoying the updated facilities.”

Manor Park Community Centre offers excellent facilities for residents who need space for their events, whether private, commercial, or community. The rooms available vary in size, with the main hall able to accommodate up to 80 people.

The centre offers special rates on children’s birthday parties, day time bookings and religious, charity and community events.
