New community facility opening soon in Manor Park

Published: 08 May 2018

Refurbishment work is underway at the new Manor Park Pavilion (formally known as Manor Park Hall) to create a new space for the community to hire.

The council held a consultation in the Manor Park area last year to find out what community facilities residents would like to see in their local area. A key area of feedback was for more space to hire for community events, parties and meetings.

The refurbishment will include remodelling the rear of the building to create a large meeting room, served by its own kitchen and separate entrance, for the community to hire. The Ujala Foundation will be based in the front of the building offering various community initiatives.

It is expected the works will be finished in early summer 2018.

Leo Masood, buildings and projects manager, said: “We ran a consultation in the Manor Park area last year, and overwhelmingly residents said they would really like more space to hire for community events. Now along with the community centre, the pavilion will give more options to people who need space for their events.

“I am really looking forward to opening this facility for the community in early summer.”
