NEIGHBOURHOOD campaigners in Burnley have been handed the keys to a former library to serve as their new community centre.

Supporters of the Thursby Gardens Community Action Group (TGCAG) were first in line for the rights to take over the former Colne Road library, which closed as part of a county council shake-up in 2008.

Point Wells residents and ratepayers turned out in force on Tuesday, June 5 for the official handover of the keys – and management – of their local hall from Auckland Council to the community.

The new arrangement means that the Point Wells Hall committee can set its own hire fees and is responsible for its day-to-day running, while Council retains ownership of the building.
