ELLESMERE Port and Neston Borough Council has handed over the keys for a state-of-the-art centre to the community in Neston.
The new £1.1 million Neston Resource Centre is the culmination of several years’ work to create a top class community facility for the town and was an integral part of the Neston Market Town Initiative.
Funded by £650,000 from Ellesmere Port and Neston Borough Council and £450,000 from the North West Development Agency, the centre has been handed over to a limited company set up especially to run the building.
Neston’s original youth club in Burton Road was bulldozed to make way for the specially designed resource centre, which will house:
Three all-purpose rooms for adult education and exercise.
A computer suite for internet access, IT training and education.
Fully equipped kitchens for functions and staff.
A specially designed youth zone with social area, pool table, television and kitchen area all with its own entrance.
Leader of Ellesmere Port and Neston Borough Council Justin Madders said: “We are delighted that this major project has come to fruition.”
