The third anniversary of a major project to transform a former hospital into a community hub was marked by an important visit. Lord Tom McNally was given a tour and preview of works underway on the Fleetwood Community Hub, in Lancashire.

Shelby is employed as Employer’s Agent on the scheme, which will provide a multi-service hub for the local community. Future tenants include a regional housing and maintenance group, Changing Places facility, charity partners and a higher education provider.

Charley Wilkinson, Fleetwood Trust’s CEO, said: “The Trust are delighted to be working with Shelby on this exciting project, as they not only bring a wealth of experience, professionalism and knowledge but have members of their team locally based in Wyre.”
