New Kitchen

At Preston Road Community Centre there was a gathering to open the new kitchen.

Julie Mayhew Archer, chairman of the Vale of the White Horse District Council, was there, as were representatives of groups like WREN which also gave grants.

There was the Mayor, Lorraine Oates and the Deputy Mayor, Pat Lonergan, and local people.

Mick Busby, the chair of the community centre, asked Councillor Mary De Vere to cut the ribbon, because of all her hard work on fund raising for the project.

The community centre and kitchen are there for the use of the community,whether that be community groups, or people who hire the hall for functions. For more information visit the Community Centre Webpage.

Its like a village hall: for the southern part of the town. Elsewhere in Abingdon are community centres such as :Hadland Road, Long Furlong, and Peachcroft,(and I am reminded by the comment Northcourt. Sorry Northcourt!).

There is another community centre on Northcourt, albeit not a very big one.
