Centre project funds approved

Have your say

WORK could start by the summer to create a new community centre in a Sheffield neighbourhood after funding was approved by the council.

Sheffield Council’s ruling cabinet has agreed to allocated £240,000 towards bringing the communal building at the old Newman Court sheltered housing scheme, Wincobank, back into use as a village hall.

Coun Peter Price, who represents the area, said: “It’s a historic decision. Work could start by mid summer.”
