Loughborough Children’s Centre Revamp Underway
Loughborough Children’s Centre in Brixton has begun refurbishments costing nearly half a million pounds as part of Lambeth Early Action Partnership’s (LEAP) ongoing ‘Capital Project’, a £4million redevelopment project of 11 different children early years spaces in Lambeth.
The work includes a new outdoor space for play, a buggy store, a new entrance, as well as an improvement to the inside of the building which will see improved space for the delivery of health services and the refurbishment of spaces for the delivery of stay and play activities and groupwork. The work was carried out by PA Finlay & Company Ltd.
LEAP Director Laura McFarlane said of the work: “It was fantastic to go down to Loughborough and see the work well underway. These improvements are going to make a huge difference in terms of the activities Loughborough Children’s Centre can put on and to the long-term development of children.
“It was really nice to have the children here and they all were really excited to see the progress and can’t wait to use the new facilities.”
To celebrate the work starting, Loughborough Children’s Centre staff, LEAP and local children took a tour of the facilities and looked at how the new-look centre is developing.
LEAP’s Capital Project has been taking shape since November 2017 and work has already seen improvements to the Mulberry Centre, Max Roach One O’clock Club and St Stephens Children’s Centre amongst others. All work across the 11 sites should be completed by the Autumn of 2019.
