With construction nearing completion at the new Timebridge Community Centre in New Addington, a topping out ceremony was held by The McAvoy Group and their client Croydon Borough Council to mark the milestone.
A key part of Croydon Borough Council’s extensive regeneration programme for New Addington the new 2-storey purpose built centre combines the Fieldway Family Centre, the Timebridge Community Centre and includes a food bank, the Learning Tree nursery and a youth centre. There are also several flexible spaces to hire, including a multi-purpose hall, two studio spaces, conference and meeting rooms and social space.
The event was held with safe distancing measures being followed by all attendees. Guests included Croydon’s Madam Mayor, Maddie Henson, local ward councillors and representatives of local community groups.
Gavin Ward, Project Manager at The McAvoy Group, said: “By incorporating the most advanced offsite construction techniques, we have been able to turn this project around in under a year, despite Covid-related delays – it’s a high-quality, intuitively designed building and I’ve no doubt it will continue adding huge value to the local community for many years to come.”
Cllr Simon Hall, Cabinet Member for Finance and Resources, Councillor for New Addington North Ward addressed the attendees stating;
“The new centre will provide much needed enhanced facilities enabling local groups to continue with their excellent work in serving the local community. This new community centre follows on from the completion of the all new leisure centre on central parade. The Council has also commenced with works on the Timebridge fields for an all new SEN school which will be completed in Sept 2021.”
