Cash Boost For Freemantle Community Centre

Great news for Freemantle. The community centre in Randolph Street received an extra cash boost in September, with £750,000 awarded by the Learning and Skills Council for Theatre and Media Arts.

Work to revamp and develop the community centre will start in November. This will see a new Multi User Games Area, improvements to the 100 seat theatre, new community rooms and a media arts room. Work should be completed next September. The new facility will be shared by user groups and Southampton Day Services who will operate out of the building.

This is great news for Freemantle and will breath new life into the local community.
