RESIDENTS living on a Woodbridge estate are being given the chance to have a say about their new community centre.

An open forum will take place following the Kyson Annual General Meeting tomorrow to find out how the new centre should be used.

The forum will also be used to help allay fears of the people who were against it being opened.

Previously people living in the area have had to travel into Woodbridge to use playgroups and the community hall.

But after five years of planning and a successful bid for a lottery grant, a new centre is due to open at the end of December in Churchill Close.

Now the Kyson Community Association, which set up the centre, is looking for the views of people who would be using it, to see what they want.

George Rose, chairman of the association, said: "People may have ideas for clubs that could be held there or they may want to hire the building for a function.

"There will be some people there who are against it and we will be there to answer questions and allay their fears."

The meeting is being held at 7.30pm at Kyson School.

Anyone who cannot attend the meeting can contact Mr Rose with their ideas or if they want to hire the hall on 01394 384190.
