Photo essay: Community celebration marks new era at New Wortley

A fabulous weekend of community celebration drew the crowds at New Wortley Community Centre – and the official opening of the centre’s new £640,000 building was also marked in style.

Hundreds of people flocked to the weekend of community celebrations, which featured a parade, community fair, community cabaret and a host of events at the centre off Tong Road and nearby Bethel Free Church.
