Golden Acre Refurbishment Complete!

After an extensive refurbishment, the Golden Acre Community Centre in Saffron Walden is ready for use! The Community Centre is an important local resource near Katherine Semar School for that area of town -and for community groups and users from local villages too.

R4U Town Councillor Sharon Morris said:

“We’re delighted with the refurbishment of Golden Acre and the fact that the Community Centre is now almost always fully used. Bookings are up over last year and income is running well above budget. Under the last town council Golden Acre was poorly used and it was even proposed that it be sold. One of R4U’s first actions on gaining office in May 2015 was to stop those plans, and the success of Golden Acre shows exactly why it was right to invest in refurbishing and promoting it to keep it as a community asset.”
