Freebridge Announces Open Day As Discovery Centre Takes Shape

14/08/18

Having become the proud owners of North Lynn’s Discovery Centre in April, Freebridge Community Housing has announced the date of an Open Day at the Centre on Monday 3 September (from 10am – 4pm) to show the local community the work that has been completed getting the buildings back into shape and ready to use.

Since being handed the keys earlier in the year, a considerable amount of refurbishment activity has taken place, with most of this work being completed by operatives from Freebridge’s Property Services and Placeshaping teams. The King’s Lynn Police Cadets have also got involved, and have done some great work in helping clear and tidy the external areas of the Centre.

Freebridge Director of Housing, Robert Clarke, said: “We want the Discovery Centre to become a central part of the community in North Lynn and the wider West Norfolk, and we want to make sure that as many people and community groups get involved with what we’re planning as possible.

“During the consultation events we held in early May we received some great feedback about what people wanted to see, and this will help us with our plans for the months ahead.

“We’re already working closely with a number of groups interested in working out of the Centre including the YMCA, who have successfully secured funding to establish five open access youth clubs for young people aged 10-18 over the next three years, and Active Norfolk who in partnership with Norfolk Constabulary, the YMCA and Alive Leisure are looking to help provide sport and physical opportunities for younger people at the Centre.

“The Open Day on the 3rd is free to attend, and refreshments will be provided from our Community Cafe over on Hillington Square. We’d love to see as many people as possible come and see how we’re getting on, so if you’re involved in a group who might want to use the Discovery Centre in some way or are just someone who wants to have a look around, come and join us!”

If you want to find out more about what’s happening with the Discovery Centre but can’t make it on the day give Freebridge’s Placeshaping Team a call on (01553) 667777.
