Construction started on community centre
Building works have started on the new Wickford Community Centre due to be completed at Nevendon Recreation Ground by the end of the summer.
The centre is being relocated from Market Road to the recreation ground in Nevendon Road, and will include the One Step Ahead pre-school.
Enviro Building Solutions began work on the site last month, and the development project is expected to be finished by the end of August.
Paul Heard, chairman of Wickford Community Association, said: “The new centre will continue to offer its existing facilities, as well as host the ever expanding range of public events and activities for the benefit of the residents of both Wickford and surrounding areas.
"The success of our community centre is attributable to its staff and volunteers as well as community involvement. I hope the new centre will continue to provide leisure, educational and social activities for everyone for many years to come."
