Steeton Community Hub ready to go public
9:00am Sunday 10th March 2013 in News
Parish council members have been showing off Steeton’s Community Hub.
And they are calling on residents of both Steeton and Eastburn to begin using the recently-completed public building.
Chairman David Mullen said the building – next to the bowling green off Skipton Road – was fully equipped.
He added the Hub had been used for the past couple of months for council meetings and police surgeries, but was now available for wider use.
Following the addition of a snack kitchen, partition door and dozens of chairs, it is suitable for functions, parties, meetings and regular group activities.
Villagers will be able to see the building for themselves when it is officially opened on April 6 during a ceremony due to be attended by civic dignitaries.
The Hub cost about £40,000 to construct, furnish and equip, with most of the money coming from Steeton-with-Eastburn Parish Council and environmental charity bodies Wren and Yorventure.
It was built next to Steeton bowling green, replacing the old bowling pavilion and providing extra space for other village groups.
Facilities include a large function room that can be split into two and a smaller meeting room.
