A community centre in Hamilton has temporarily shut its doors after it suffered water and electrical damage last week.

The Department of Youth, Sport and Recreation said the Sammy Wilson Community Centre on Angle Street has been closed.

A spokeswoman said: “Work crews from the Ministry of Public Works are assessing the space, and all programmes that are normally held at the Sammy Wilson Community Center will be suspended until April 1, when the repairs are scheduled to be completed.

“It should be noted that those facilitators whose programmes take place at the SWCC have been notified of the disruption.

“Where possible, community programmes facilitated by community workers will continue. In some instances, certain programmes will take place at alternative venues.”

The Department apologised for any inconvenience and thanked the public for their patience.
