A moving opening for new Whitnash Civic Centre and Library

It was an emotional day in Whitnash last month as local representatives gathered to officially open the town’s new Civic Centre and Library.

The £2.5 million community facility had been the long-term aspiration of Whitnash Town Council who led the project in partnership with Warwick District Council and Warwickshire County Council to bring several local services under one roof.

At the opening which took place on 17 November, tributes were made to Councillor Tony Heath, one of the main advocates of the new centre, who sadly passed away weeks before its completion and former Whitnash Councillor and Mayor Bernard Kirton who died last year who had long campaigned for improved community facilities.

The official ceremony and ribbon cutting for the centre which includes a multi-use sports hall, library, community café, meeting room and offices for the Town Council, was conducted by the Mayor of Whitnash, Councillor Adrian Barton. There were also plaques revealed for the main hall named after Tony Heath and meeting room which has been named after Bernard Kirton.

Further information and facility booking details can be found on the Whitnash Civic Centre website.
