Community centre celebrates birthday
A COMMUNITY centre used by more than 1,000 people each week has celebrated its 25th anniversary.
The Coombes Community Centre, in Burns Road, Royston, held a birthday party on Saturday, when guests were entertained by the Electralites Majorettes and a ukulele band, both of which practice at the centre.
Mayor of Royston, Cllr Lindsay Davidson, was also on hand to give a speech and cut two birthday cakes.
Gillian Morland, manager of Coombes Community Centre, said: “We had lots of people come who have been part of the centre over the years.”
Also celebrating were children and youth workers from Therfield Chapel. Youth work, led by Margaret and Michael MacCormack, has been carried out by the church for the last 40 years, and has been based at Coombes for the last 20 years.
