A festive fun day to celebrate the wide range of community services being delivered at St Mellons Hub will be held next week.

Cabinet Member for Housing and Communities, Cllr Lynda Thorne, said:

“Community fun days at our hubs are always successful events with plenty to see and do.  They are also fantastic opportunities for us to showcase the wide range of services available at the hub and in the local community.

“St Mellons hub is a real asset for this part of the city, with an impressive range of facilities and thanks to the recent investment in the facility, I’m delighted that we are able to deliver even more services for people in the area. I hope people will come along to join us next Wednesday.”
