Community welcomes new-look centre
The newly extended and refurbished Kingsnorth Recreation Centre was opened on Monday.
The deputy mayor of Ashford, Cllr Jessamy Blanford, had the honour of opening the building which has been closed since April.
Little Acorns Nursery, which has been using the recreation centre for a long time, has now been able to move into their own dedicated area in the new extension and has its own separate entrance.
Another major investment has been in the gym in the centre, which is set to open on January 13.
Already a lot of new gym equipment has been installed while a few more pieces have been ordered set to arrive in time for the opening.
However, the general exercise Deputy Mayor of Ashford Cllr Jessamy Blanford taks to parish councillors and centre users in one of the new areas created by the refurbishment classes have already started in the newly refurbished main hall. Ashford Borough Coun- cil (ABC), Kingsnorth Parish Council and NuCadd Architectural, the architect and project manager behind the work, were all thanked for their support and hard work on the project.
