The opening of a new £1million community centre has been hailed as a “very positive” step for a growing residential area of a Suffolk town.

The centre on Cedars Park, in Stowmarket, held an open weekend for people to find out more about the facility.

Dusty Miller, chairman of the Cedars Park Community Interest Company said: “It went really well, we had a really good day. We had a steady influx of people with about 300 here for the barbecue. It’s been absolutely brilliant and there were many families with children here.

“It was very positive. We had 100 members of the community interest company last week and over the weekend we had just under 100 sign up.”

The centre will be used for a variety of purposes including Cedars Park Football Club, a new pre-school and several fitness classes.
