A DAY centre for elderly women has been officially opened by Halifax MP Linda Riordan.

The new women’s activity centre at Bembridge Park centre, Hopwood Lane, started taking clients on Monday.

Sahaeed Mahmoon from the centre said the opening was a “brilliant” day.

“We can take up to 35 people each day and we have two lounge rooms, computer and a sewing room. We’re working on getting some gym equipment,” he said.

Other facilities include a prayer room and library.

The centre was opened to fill a gap in the market.

“We did six months research looking at the HX1 and HX2 postcode and there’s nothing else out there like this,” he said.
