A KEIGHLEY community building has undergone a transformation.

The Keighley Healthy Living premises in Scott Street have been given a major revamp, supported by a £95,000 grant from the Towns Fund.

A 'welcome space' and new community room have been created, the building redecorated and the garden redesigned, with full disabled access and planters at wheelchair height.

Around 500 people use the centre every week for activities including yoga and tai chi, and classes such as drawing and painting, gardening, British Sign Language and IT support.

Melanie Hey, chief executive officer of Keighley Healthy Living, says: "We are supporting more people than ever before and it’s important for us to have a space which not only facilitates what we do, but creates a sense of community.

"Thanks to the funding, our architects and builders, we have certainly achieved that."

She adds: "We are delighted that our users have given us positive feedback, particularly around improved accessibility and the garden. The building is now owned by Keighley Healthy Living and we’ve stipulated that it must always be used for the community, so creating this incredible space will be a legacy for the people of Keighley for a long time to come."
