Leaside Redevelopment Completed !

Home » Newsroom » Leaside Redevelopment Completed !

We are delighted to report that the latest phase of the Redevelopment Project at Leaside Church and Community Centre has been completed at a cost of £ 787,000

The project which has taken just under a year to complete has seen refurbishment of the Church and Hall with wheelchair friendly access to all areas.

The improvements include

  • A smaller meeting room in the Hall that can be divided into two spaces if necessary and accessible whilst the kindergarten are in session.
  • The creation of a new link building between the Church and the Hall which serves as the new entrance to the complex.
  • A ramp has been built to enable access to the Church for those with impaired mobility.
  • A new meeting area in the church building with a tea and coffee point and access to new toilets via the linking building.
  • Space in the church building for exhibitions, concerts and large meetings with a capacity of up to 100 people, more if the gallery is used.

The architect for the project was Clifford Patten DipARCH, RIBA
The builders were Bolt & Heeks Ltd

To mark the 'new beginning' that these enhancements bring, a weekend of Celebration is being held on 21 & 22 July
