The Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Councillor Thomas Hogg, officially opened the newly extended Whiteabbey Community Centre recently.

Following a £100,000 investment by the former Newtownabbey Borough Council, the extension and refurbishment work has transformed the centre, which now boasts a new kitchen, toilet facilities, storage facilities and two additional meeting rooms.

Cllr Paul Hamill, Alderman Billy DeCourcy, Cllr David Hollis, Alderman Pamela Barr and Cllr Stephen Ross attended the event to mark the reopening of Whiteabbey Community Centre.

Speaking at the event, the Mayor commented: “I am delighted to open this fantastic new extension today which is part of a centre that has been at the heart of this local community since it first opened in 2006.

“The investment made by the council has helped to create a modern, fit for purpose building that both the council and the community can be proud of. This is now a top class venue for the many clubs and groups that use it on a weekly basis.”

Cllr Hogg also thanked contractors, Martin Contracts, and Robert Logan Architects for their work on the extension and refurbishment project.
