A brand new community centre has officially opened its doors to the public at our sought-after Augusta Park development in Andover, Hampshire.
Managed by Augusta Park Community Association (APCA), the new facility – which boasts two main halls, three meeting rooms and a kitchen – has so far proven a success since its launch with a number of local groups showing an interest in using the centre, including Adventure Pre-school, which has already agreed a lease with APCA for one hall and one meeting room.
The building has been funded by our teams at Taylor Wimpey West London and Taylor Wimpey Southern Counties, after both regional businesses joined forces to deliver the centre as part of the S106 agreement at Augusta Park. APCA also secured funding from Hampshire County Council (HCC) to undertake modifications during the build to accommodate the pre-school.
Emma Jones, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey West London, says: “We are delighted to announce that our brand new community centre at Augusta Park is now officially open to visitors.
“It’s great to know we’ve built a facility that the local residents will be able to enjoy for many years to come. There is already a great sense of community spirit at Augusta Park and we hope the new centre will build on that.”
APCA was formed in August 2012 by a group of local residents. The community association aspires to improve the lives of those who live at the development, by turning the housing estate into a community. A number of events have already taken place at Augusta Park and the new centre will open even more opportunities for APCA.
Local schools, groups, clubs and residents are all invited to use the centre, whether it’s for meetings and conferences, exercise classes or parties. A number of slimming groups, baby and toddler groups and martial arts groups have already expressed an interest.
Fiona Creed, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey Southern Counties, says: “Since opening the new community centre at Augusta Park, there has been a lot of interest from local groups who are looking to use the building to host classes and meetings alike.
“We are over the moon with the response we’ve received because it really reflects what a great community we have forming at this development.”
