PEOPLE in a city suburb have the chance to have their say on the future of a well known community building.

Great Boughton Parish Council is in advanced negotiations with Cheshire West and Chester Council to agree a long term lease for the Square One Centre on Thackeray Drive in Vicars Cross.

Ideas are also being developed to enhance the Thackeray Drive playing field and the adjacent children's play area which are already under the parish council’s control.

The council says it is intending to apply for grant funding to enhance the facilities and make Square One a community resource for all, expanding from its historic role as mainly a youth centre.

It would like to involve the community in managing Square One and an initial meeting of people who expressed an interest has already taken place.

This is being followed up by an open morning to be held on Saturday, March 2, from 10am-noon at Square One to further consult with the community.

“Please come along, we are really interested in your views,” says the parish council.
