Bishop Hannington Youth and Community Centre
Over one hundred people present
Well over one hundred local people gathered as a Deputy Lieutenant of Sussex, Roger French, declared the Bishop Hannington Youth and Community Centre reopened on Saturday 1 September. Also present were the Mayor of Brighton and Hove, Cllr. Dee Simson and the Archdeacon of Brighton and Lewes, the Venerable Martin Lloyd Williams. The afternoon included demonstration games on the new all-weather court, musical entertainment, indoor games and lots of tea and cake.
Building completely refurbished
The building, which has stood at the junction of Holmes Avenue and Wayfield Avenue in Hove for more than eighty years, has been completely refurbished to a very high standard and provides both indoor and outdoor facilities just a short way from the parent church, Bishop Hannington Memorial Church.
A vibrant part of the community
Canon Phil Moon, the vicar of Bishop Hannington Memorial Church said, “I’m thrilled that we have been able to complete this project and I thank all who have contributed so generously. I want this building to be a place that local folk will use and feel at home in. We will be introducing a range of activities and really want to show that our Church has a vibrant and relevant part in the life of this community.”
