Shahid Malik MP:

"For three years or so I have been working behind the scenes, putting together a compelling case to persuade the council to make the necessary investment in the centre.

"Sadly, for two years the Conservative administration at Kirklees refused to make the necessary funds available to refurbish the centre, instead choosing to leave it to rot.

"It's brilliant that within a year of a Labour administration taking over we have managed to get this investment which will help get this much needed community resource back on it's feet. Great credit goes to Council leader Mehboob Khan and Cabinet member Peter O'Neil for the commitment they have shown to Thornhill with this investment.

"Also I must pay tribute to Betty Blakeley and the team who have managed to keep the group together and maintain it's functions at the SureStart centre next door.
