Welwyn Garden City’s Panshanger Community Centre has been reopened following a £50k refurbishment.

Local groups and hirers joined council staff to unveil the new-look facility, which has been painted and had new flooring installed throughout.

It will be managed by the team from Campus West and adds to the council’s provision of community spaces, which also includes Hazel Grove, Vineyard Barn and the Hub in Hatfield town centre.

Kate Whiteland, who runs pilates classes at the centre as well as at Vineyard Barn, said: “I’m really impressed with the new facilities – it’s so much nicer than it was before.”

Gill Johnson from School 4 Dogs said: “It’s a lovely new facility. It looks bigger and more spacious and I know the dogs will love it. We’re really pleased to see it back in the community again.”

Councillor Duncan Bell said: “The centre looks absolutely fantastic.

“We’ve all been so impressed with the standard of the works and how quickly the team has completed the project over the summer to minimise disruption for hirers.

“I’m positive the centre will continue to be a focal point of community life for many years to come.”
