A major milestone has been reached in the building of a new community hub in Enfield.

The Ordnance Unity Centre in Ordnance Road, Enfield Wash will contain a community hall, doctors’ and dentists’ surgery.

Building contractor Graham Construction is celebrating the framework of the new site taking shape and the first floor slabs being laid.

They were joined by Enfield Borough Councillors to mark the occasion.

Councillor Christine Hamilton, Enfield Council’s cabinet member for community safety, wellbeing and public health, said: “Ordnance Unity Centre will provide essential services for this area improving lives in every way.

“This project has been planned with local people, the NHS and the council. It will soon be complete and established as an indispensable community building for people of all ages to use and enjoy.”

The company's construction director Jonathan Hall said: "We are tremendously proud to be playing our part in delivering this excellent facility for the community in Enfield.

"There has been a great deal of interest and enthusiasm for the new centre since we started work on the site and I'm sure it will be warmly welcomed and well utilised by local people.”

The hub is set to open this summer.
