A St Helens community centre has unveiled an historical timeline stretching as far back as the 19th century.
Crownway Community Centre in Earlestown launched its timeline dating back to 1871 as part of its 10 year anniversary celebrations.
Originally a project of the Earlestown Baptist Church on Crown Street, the community centre has gone from strength to strength since it officially opened in October 2005.
Crownway was awarded £340,388 in July 2015, its second investment since 2010 from the Big Lottery Fund’s Reaching Communities programme.
Craig Fryer, development worker, said: “This funding will ensure that the Centre can continue to provide much needed healthy living sessions, adult learning courses, family recreational activities, support services and facilities for the residents of Earlestown and Newton-le-Willows. Another great achievement for the staff, volunteers and the community as a whole.”
The Centre is open from 9am until 9pm Monday to Friday, and has a community cafe open from 10am until 2pm.
