The Hersham Centre for the Community has re-opened following a temporary closure. The eight-week closure allowed Elmbridge Borough Council to upgrade Centre facilities and address health and safety requirements.
Councillor Ruth Lyon, Portfolio Holder for Social Affairs said: “I am pleased to announce that Hersham Centre for the Community is once again open to the public. We are delighted to show everyone the updated areas of the Centre. Our Centres for the Community play a significant role in meeting the needs of local people and we know residents will benefit from the changes made to the building”.
Refurbishments to the Centre include a newly painted café and toilet facilities. To help celebrate the official re-opening of Hersham Centre for the Community, residents were welcomed back with a roast dinner lunch, all topped off with a glass of bubbly. In addition to the café and toilet facilities being upgraded, the closure also allowed the Council to replace the Centre boiler, electrics and meet other health and safety requirements following a detailed survey.
Councillor Stuart Selleck, Leader of Elmbridge Borough Council said: “The short-term closure of Hersham Centre for the Community has ensured the building meets recommended health and safety standards. Now that the Centre is open again, this is a perfect opportunity to find out more about the superb services available”.
The Centre offers a variety of activities throughout the week including exercise classes, iPad support sessions, ballroom dancing and much more. If you would like further information on Hersham Centre for the Community please contact 01932 246267.
