Dr Dan supports local community project in Framlingham

Dr Dan with members of the Framlingham Police House Site Steering GroupDr Dan welcomed the progress that is being made by a local group to develop a much-needed new community facility in Framlingham, after he chaired the Annual General Meeting of the Framlingham and District Development Trust last week. A large audience gathered at Framlingham Sports Club to hear how the Framlingham Police House Site Steering Group is making strides in its bid to convert the old police station site in Badingham Road into a new community facility for young people.

Earlier this year, the Mills Charity purchased the old police station site and offered the community a chance to buy it by the end of next year. This triggered the setting up of the Framlingham Police House Steering Group, which is made up of members from the sports club, Scouts, Guides and Framlingham Area Youth Action Partnership (FAYAP). A series of meetings have taken place over recent months, where plans to turn the redundant site into a community facility for young people to use have been discussed.

At the Annual General Meeting on Friday, preliminary drawings of the proposed facility were unveiled and a consultation process will now be launched in Framlingham, where local residents can view the plans before the funding rounds are launched. Dan is a strong supporter of the steering group’s plans to provide for a new community facility, which will enable youngsters in Framlingham to engage in meaningful activity whilst meeting with friends. He would like to thank John Speight and the other members of the group for their ongoing commitment to the project.
