“It’s good news that Neighbourhood Renewal Investment funding of £1million will go towards the capital costs of a new Top of the Hill community centre.

“Along with DCSDC  commitment of £1.3 million, all funding has now been secured for this much needed project.

“The purpose built two story centre will be located on Trench Road in the grounds of the old Immaculate Conception College site right in the heart of the community. It will  provide state of the art facilities for everyone young and old living in the greater Top of the Hill area.

“Construction work is expected to start early in the New Year.
