Signed sealed and delivered – Ferndown Town Council is now welcoming residents to its new offices in the Barrington Centre.
Earlier today (Friday 24 April), Town Mayor Cllr Mike Parkes and the Chairman of the Barrington Centre, Chris Allen, signed the lease for the three rooms which form the new offices.
The ceremony was watched by town council staff who have have been in the new premises since 8 April. During this period enquiries have trebled compared to when the council was based at King George V Pavilion.
The Mayor said: “It is wonderful to have the council in the centre of the town, something which I have wanted to achieve for the 17 years I have been a councillor.
Chris Allen explained: “The Barrington Centre is for the community so it is the perfect place for the town council. I am delighted they are now here.”
