Bray Sinn Féin Councillor Michael O’Connor has welcomed the allocation of €30,500 by Bray Municipal District towards the replacement of the roof on the Community Centre in Fassaroe. The decision was taken by the council at their meeting on Tuesday evening.
Speaking after the meeting Councillor O’Connor said “I’m delighted that the local area councillors supported the proposal to allocate €30,500 towards replacing the roof on the community centre in Fassaroe. The community centre is a fantastic amenity which is widely by locals and residents from across Bray.”
“Unfortunately the original roof on the Community Centre is in an unsafe condition and needs to be completely replaced. It’s estimated that it will cost up to €80,000 to replace the roof, making it safe and ensuring that it’s to a high energy rating. The allocation of €30,500 from Bray Municipal District is not just recognition of the important work that’s carried out in the centre; it’s also recognition of the fantastic team of people who operate it.”
Welcoming the allocation of the funding Teachta John Brady said “The allocation of the funding for the replacement of the Community Centre roof in Fassaroe is fantastic news. I have been working with the management of the centre over the last number of years to have the work carried out. I had previously secured some funding to have some sections of the roof replaced as a temporary measure. The allocation of €30,500 in tandem with some Leader funding recently secured will go a long way to completely replacing of the roof.”
“I want to commend all the staff in the Community Centre who have worked tirelessly on this issue to ensure that the centre can continue to be at the heart of Fassaroe, providing a first class amenity for all the community.”
