Magilligan Community Centre has been officially opened by the Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council.

The state of the art, energy efficient building will be managed on behalf of Council by the Magilligan Community Association and will provide a new community hall, an interactive training room, a community office and modern kitchen facilities.

Attending the launch, the Mayor said: “The Magilligan Community Centre is a fantastic example of local communities coming together in partnership with Council and providing a safe, accessible place for people of all abilities to enjoy. Capital investment in community infrastructure is hugely important and I commend all those including Council’s Capital Works Team who contributed to the finished result in creating this forward thinking, modern centre.”

Furthermore, Alice Conn, a key committee member from Magilligan Community Association added: “We are delighted with the new community centre and are looking forward to working and delivering community services and activities from this beautiful building. We are also planning our Community launch and fun day in July when we will welcome everyone through our doors.”

The new centre was a joint project between Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council’s Community and Culture Team and Capital Projects Team.
