Fun day crowd celebrates centre’s arrival
1:00pm Saturday 17th August 2013 in News
People of Melksham’s Forest area came out in force to celebrate the opening of a long-awaited community centre.
It was officially opened on Saturday by its chairman, Vic Oakman.
He said: “Everybody said what fabulous facilities we have. Everyone enjoyed the fairground rides and attractions.”
The fun day and barbecue ended with music from singer Brian Cooper.
Mr Oakman said: “We have been fighting for this for 20 years and it’s great to finally see it open.
“There’s still some more work to be done; the changing rooms need to be finished off and there’s some landscaping.”
The centre, off Bow-man’s Court, will open on Thursday to Sunday evenings and is home to four skittles teams.
