The Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Councillor Thomas Hogg, officially opened the newly extended Whiteabbey Community Centre.  Following a £100,000 investment by the former Newtownabbey Borough Council, the extension has transformed the centre, which now boasts of a new kitchen, toilet facilities, storage facilities and two additional meeting rooms.

Speaking at the event the Mayor commented;

“I am delighted to open this fantastic new extension today which is part of a centre that has been at the heart of this local community since it first opened in 2006.  The investment made by the Council has helped to create a modern, fit for purpose building that both the Council and the community can be proud of.  This is now a top class venue for the many clubs and groups that use it on a weekly basis.”

The Mayor also thanked contractors, Martin Contracts, and Robert Logan Architects.
