New £1.15million community centre in South Cerney needs a name
12:01pm Thursday 26th September 2013 in News
SOUTH CERNEY Parish Council are asking for help coming up with a "neutral" name for a new multi-purpose facility for the village.
The council has been given £1.15 million to build a 400-square metre complex for community services as part of a deal with housing developer, Redrow, which is building homes in the Mallards area of the village.
Members of the council are now trying to come up with a name for the building, which is expected to be built on the Mallards by 2015, so that it will have a universal appeal and not alienate sections of the village.
South Cerney Parish Council chairman Mike Stewart said: "If we decided to call it a youth centre then older people may see the name and think it’s not for them.
"We want to know what people would like to call it as it is going to be for all ages. We want it to appeal to everyone."
Architects White Design are currently putting together design plans for the community centre, following several consultations with people in South Cerney such as youth group, R Way.
Redrow offered the cash for the facility as part of a planning agreement called Section 106, which ensures that facilities in the village would be able to accommodate the growing housing numbers.
