A new community centre in Hoghton is opening its doors on the weekend.

Gregson Lane Community Centre, located off Gregson Lane will be opened by two residents, Phyl Barnes and Pauline Thompson who have been selected to cut the ribbon.

The pair are the guests of honour after playing a significant part in the community’s fundraising over the last 12 years, seeing the community centre evolve.

The new project was completed thanks to money for residents, businesses, supporters of Gregson Green events and a grant from South Ribble Borough Council.

Jacqui Gibson, Gregson Green’s Chairperson, said: “We’re excited to officially open our new community centre.

“The centre’s new facilities are fantastic, an improved layout means there is more space for groups, parties and events, with welcomed kitchen, storage and accessibility upgrades too.”
