Building firm Lovell has helped Freebridge Community Housing bring the hall at Providence Street Community Centre back to its former glory.

The Sports Hall, which can accommodate a range of activities from fitness classes, to five-a-side and badminton through to basketball, has had the floor fully restored, new markings laid out for a wide range of sports and bespoke football goals installed. The work took place after Lovell donated £800 to the project.

Michael Saunders, construction manager for Lovell, said: “Working together with Freebridge to bring the Sports Hall at Providence Street back to its full potential was something that we were more than happy to do.

“The community centre is a real hub for the neighbourhood and it was great to help out with this project, which is an example of the wider benefits being created through the regeneration of Hillington Square and the surrounding area.”

Robert Clarke, director of housing at Freebridge, said: “It’s fantastic that Lovell have been able to support the Sports Hall at Providence Street in this way, and help to update a brilliant venue in the heart of the community.

“We’re looking forward to challenging Lovell to a game of five-a-side very soon.”
