Nearly a year after it opened, the Phoenix Centre in River Way held an Open Day. "This was both to publicise the many activities that already take place there - and to see what additional services people would like to see provided."
"There was particular interest in the options for the open space behind the centre, which people felt might be put to better use - without building all over it. A summer barbecue to bring the community together was a popular suggestion."
Sir George said he planned to hold a session of his Advice Bureau in the Centre, to make it more accessible than Church Close.
