A CHILDREN’S centre has reopened after a £150,000 revamp.

The cash was spent on transforming Balby Central Primary School’s old nursery annex into a new multi-purpose building.

The project was carried out as a joint scheme by the school, the Central Children’s Centre and Balby Children’s Centre.

The building will now be called Space@Littlemore and was chosed by pupils at Balby Primary School.

Gail Hallsworth, senior project worker at Action for Children, said: “The team here are delighted to see this new centre up and running at last as it means people living on the other side of Balby now have easier access to a wealth of services.

“Balby has more children aged under five than anywhere else in Doncaster, so it is fantastic to have increased the opportunities for them to get the best possible start in life.”

The building had been standing derelict for the last 10 years.

The Mayor of Doncaster Peter Davies, attended the official opening of the centre, on Littlemoor Lane.
