The Trustees of Hesketh Bank Community Centre are counting down the days until they can open to the public and show off their brand new premises.

The old hall was knocked down in October 2020 and a purpose built modular centre was due to be installed last year, but that was delayed until the New Year due to Covid.

And now with lockdown restrictions easing, the Trustees will be able to get back up and running.

The new community centre

Steve Kirby, Chairman, said: “We are so looking forward to welcoming events and activities to our fabulous new facility and are gearing up to re-open from the 17 May.

“Many of our existing users, such as Becconsall U3A, who have greatly supported us with the development, are coming back but we are pleased to also be welcoming new activities such as a toddler group.

“This just proves that there is a need for community centres like this, and even more so as we hopefully get back out and about and are able to be meeting people again.”
