A £90,000 extension to the Salvation Army hall in Wollaston has been officially opened.

The Hinwick Road building, which has been upgraded to provide disabled access to visitors, was opened by divisional commander Lt. Col. Mike Caffull and Wellingborough mayor, Cllr Ken Harrington.

They joined the Wollaston corps for a special service of thanksgiving at the hall this afternoon (Saturday, November 3).

Major Paul Church, the commanding officer of the Salvation Army in Wollaston, said he welcomed the chance to get back to normal following four months of work.

“It’s given us more user-friendly faciulities,” he said. “It’s good to be back. We can now start to build on what’s been done.”

Opening the hall, Lt. Col. Caffull said the day had been “a long dreamt-of occasion”.
