Residents of a St Neots housing estate have emerged victorious following a campaign to get their long-awaited community centre off the ground.
Cambridgeshire County Council has agreed to contribute towards the funding for the Loves Farm community centre, which is expected to include a hall, meeting rooms, café, youth services and office space.
The £1.6million project costs are being shared between Huntingdonshire District Council, roughly 60 per cent, and the remainder from CCC.
St Neots Town Council has also set aside £60,000 for the scheme.
A contractor has been appointed and the building is expected to be completed by spring next year.
