Here’s what the former Ridings School could look like in just twelve months time as a community centre.

The Centre @ Threeways group plan to transform the home of the troubled school that has been empty since 2009.

The group has lined up an asset transfer of the building with Calderdale Council and it will house a host of facilities and activities aimed at being the heart of the community in north Halifax.

The new centre will focus on five key themes; healthy family, healthy community, healthy mind, healthy body andhealthy finances.

The group have been working on plans for almost three years, which include a secondary health centre,technology blocks, cinema and a business incubator for new start-ups.

They have also confirmed that an outdoor gym area will be installed and there are plans to have a community cinema area.

The centre needs community volunteers to make an impact on its future. Go to www.3ways.org.uk.
