Commenting as work begins on a major refurbishment of Victoria Hall in Culmore local Sinn Féin Councillor Sandra Duffy said “I am Delighted to see the contractors moving on site at Victoria Hall, this is very much needed for the Culmore Community who have waited on these facilities for so long.
“It will provide community services to the local population, particularly the older residents, including advice on health, finance, benefits, and employment.
“It will also provide a base from which to assist the development of local groups as they positively engage with residents by breaking down isolation and providing new opportunities and experiences in the arts, sport and local history. The community hub will also be an inclusive, welcoming and accessible space for cultural, educational, cross-community and social activities.
“Well done to all the work of the Culmore Community Partnership who have ensured this project has happened.
