Facilities in the new multi-million-pound Mildenhall Hub are expected to be open by June after being delayed by Covid.

It was originally expected that the hub, which will also be home to students from Mildenhall College Academy would be open to the public on Monday, May 24. 

As well as providing better leisure facilities, the hub will see partners in education, health and other services working even more collaboratively for the benefit of the residents. 

The new Mildenhall Library will now open a week later than originally planned on Tuesday, June 1. The gym, fitness studios and 3G pitch are also scheduled to open to the public from the same date with the pools and sports hall aiming to open during the following week.
