Mildenhall’s Jubilee Centre reopens after £750k makeover
Mildenhall’s revamped Jubilee Centre has been officially reopened after a £750,000, nine-month makeover.
The centre, built in the late 1970s, now has the latest technology with wi-fi, air conditioning, underfloor heating, solar panels and the latest standards in insulation to reduce running costs.
It was officially reopened on Wednesday by Clare, Countess of Euston, Lord Lieutenant of Suffolk who unveiled a commemorative plaque.
The Pavilion and neighbouring Jubilee Centre now provide three separate air-conditioned meeting rooms and the Jubilee Hall with stage and associated facilities, including a bar and kitchen.
Dr Richard Greenfield, Mildenhall Parish Council vice-chairman, said the revamp also made better use of the buildings.
The Pavilion building, has been used as a parish council office and small meeting room for some time, but was mostly disused changing rooms.
It now has new offices plus two meeting rooms which can be furnished as conference facilities or lecture rooms.
“The facilities are miles better than we had,” he said.
