$71-m Hanover Sports, Community Centre to open on Nov 9Thursday, November 01, 2018
HOPEWELL, Hanover – Former Governor General Sir Kenneth Hall is to deliver the keynote address at the opening of the $71-million Hanover Sports and Community Centre in Hopewell on November 9.
Construction of the solar panel multi-purpose facility started a year ago and was funded mainly by contributions from the Round Hill and Tryall resorts owners, business members of the local community and charity organisations.
The building consists, among other things, of a community/homework centre for students, concrete bleachers, a computer laboratory, bathrooms, boxing gym, basketball court, netball court, a football field and a multi-purpose hall.
Katrin Casserly, chair of Hanover Charities, expressed joy and appreciation to the many donors who have made the project possible.
“Nothing is more gratifying than seeing so many people at home and abroad pooling together to raise funds for a worthy cause,” said Casserly.
The project was developed, organised and spearheaded by Hanover Charities and Hopewell Jaycees.
