The refurbishment at the back of the Community Wise Centre in Ocklynge Road is now complete.
The centre now boasts a wonderful newly-surfaced enclosed and safe play area, two new meeting rooms with kitchen facilities and two new patio areas. An open day was held on April 14. The new facilities were officially opened by Councillor Colin Belsey, chair of East Sussex County Council, and the Mayor of Eastbourne Cllr Janet Coles cut the cake. Sixty guests attended the event.
Community Wise has raised £170,00 over the past 20 months for the improvements. A donation of £10,000 from ASDA helped the project. The centre aims to encourage family life and community spirit.
