Launch of revamped youth hub attracts star crowd

06-Sep-2017

Mayor of Chichester, Councillor Peter Evans joined residents, funders and local dignitaries at the official opening of a new youth hub at Swanfield Park Community Centre on Friday 1 September after £100,000 was dedicated to the renovation.

The work which took place between May and August, has transformed a disused shower and toilet room into a fully functional space for the youth hub. The build was made possible by local residents who, over two years, generously donated to fundraising events organised by housing group A2Dominion and thriving residents group SPRING.

The hub completes the new look community centre, which recently benefited from a £3,000 revamp after local businesses, including A2Dominion’s partner company Pyramid Plus, donated time and money to fully repaint it.

The space will now be used by young people looking to improve their health, wellbeing and fitness. Classes and activities will be held in the hub and people are advised to get in touch with SPRING or to drop in to the centre if they’re interested in attending.

Dawn Wightman, A2Dominion’s Group Housing Director, said:

“We’re really proud to be a part of this and to celebrate the completion of such an important space. It is a privilege to be a part of such a strong community.

“Thank you to those who donated to our joint fundraising activities over the last two years, and to the local partners and residents who have worked hard to make this project come to life. The investment you have put in is more than worth it and will benefit young people for years to come.”

Tracey Chapman, Chair of SPRING, said:

“The support we’ve had from A2Dominion and our local partners has been amazing and we would not be where we’re today without them. Having access to this new space will change the way we work and what we can offer young people using the centre, and we just can’t wait to get started!”
