Down to work

MAJOR maintenance works are set to be carried out at a village community centre.

Widdrington Station and Stobswood Parish Council is seeking advice from experts about the whole electrical system at the Grange Road facility.

Councillors say that a whole-scale overhaul may be needed to bring the system up to scratch, including the likely replacement of the central heating system and assessment of the burglar alarm.

Members have also agreed for urgent roof repairs to be carried out following damage in recent strong winds.
