The recently refurbished Quarter Jack Suite at Allendale Community Centre is now available for all Civic meetings. Members and officers hope that the new location will see increased attendance from members of the public.

Richard Jones, Democratic Services and Elections Manager said “We look forward to welcoming people to the new venue in Wimborne.  The Quarter Jack Suite has been fully refurbished and I am pleased that the space is now able to be used by both East Dorset District Council and the wider community.

“Thank you to the team at the Allendale Community Centre for being so accommodating and allowing us to use the centre to host Civic meetings. We hope that both staff and visitors will see the benefits that the refurbished room, improved ICT equipment and newly installed wi-fi will bring.”
