Phoenix Community Centre opens new playgroup

Last week I attended the opening of a fantastic brand new playgroup area of the Phoenix Community Centre.

The opening of this fantastic new area for the playgroup is a real success story and shows how far the centre has come. I want to praise staff members and volunteers led by playgroup manager Marie Smith for the brilliant work they do.

I have backed the Phoenix Community Centre for many years and lobbied with the team to keep the centre open when they were first threatened with closure.

Marie and the team have really beaten the odds to not only keep the centre open, but to raise almost £200,000 and dramatically improve the facilities. It would have been easy for the team to give up at any point – but they never did.

There’s still a lot more to be done, and I know the team are already thinking about their big plans for the rest of the building.
