Haslingden: Official opening of the ViC Centre

Last week was the official launch day for Veterans in the Community in the Mary Hindle Centre, Haslingden. Following our successful campaign to regain the building from Agapao International it is fantastic to see what Veterans in the Community have done with the building since November 2013 and what an effect they have had on local veterans.

The launch event was well attended with representatives from the armed forces, Lancashire County Council and Rossendale BC. In addition, there were volunteers and local former armed services personnel who use the centre and who volunteer their time in order to make the centre a success.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank VIC and all the volunteers who have made the project possible and who have ensured that the building remains a community asset for the people of Haslingden and the surrounding area.
