This day will be the culmination of five years’ work from the time the centre was first proposed.
It is the first community centre in the area since the Croxteth Park estate was built and it will be something which I believe will bring the community together and be the focus of activity in the years to come – that is why the opening of it will be a celebration.
I know Rhys’s parents are delighted with the centre and are looking forward to it being used by the community.
