Hurst Grange Park Coach House was given a grand official reopening on Saturday following its long-awaited refurbishment – thanks to National Lottery funding and an injection of £253,000 from South Ribble Borough Council.
Council Leader Paul Foster said:
“We’re incredibly proud of what we’ve been able to deliver here. We’ve said all along that this administration is here to get things done and this is just the beginning.
“With the opening of this magnificent Coach House at Hurst Grange Park and the upcoming refurbishment of Worden Hall, we’re making the most of South Ribble’s beautiful parks and proud heritage.
“Meanwhile, as part of our ‘More People, More Active’ strategy, we’re investing in sports and leisure facilities across the borough – including the development of the new South Ribble Playing Pitch Hub as well as improvements to our existing leisure centres and sports pavilions.
“We’re also building affordable new homes in Bamber Bridge on the site of the old McKenzie Arms and creating the borough’s first ‘extra care’ facility in Leyland, where ambitious plans are coming together as part of the £25m Leyland Town Deal.
“All in all it’s a really exciting time for South Ribble.”
