A ‘topping out’ ceremony took place at what will be the new Community Centre on the King’s Reach estate in Biggleswade on Wednesday.

The ceremony was attended by Cllr Maurice Jones representing Central Beds Council, Hazel Ramsay, the Mayor of Biggleswade and Graham Rendall, the project manager of the Centre.

Cllr Jones attached the last piece of guttering to finish the roof of the new-look building and now all that remains is the inside work. The Centre is scheduled to open in December.

Cllr Jones said: “There are two big rooms, a kitchen that outside caterers can used and it looks to be a really nice facility. When you look around at all the housing there needs to be a Centre like this for everyone to use.”
