CAMPAIGNERS are calling for the public to get behind a new community centre for Sutton Bridge – by buying a brick in the new building.
The group behind the new £500,000 centre, being built at the Memorial Park, has launched its ‘Buy a Brick’ campaign ahead of a progress party at the site on Saturday.
People can pay 50p per brick to have their name added to the community centre’s official record.
On Tuesday Peter Clery of the Sutton Bridge Community Centre Fund pocketed £10 from parish and district councillor Michael Booth for the first 20 bricks sold as part of the project.
The group hopes to boost the money at its progress party, which starts at 11.30am.
Mr Clery said: “Everyone interested is cordially invited to follow Michael’s lead and buy as many bricks as they can.”
Pupils from Westmere Primary School’s ideas for the centre will be on show at the party.
