The new Goosecroft Centre officially opened.
The long awaited redevelopment and refurbishment of the Northallerton and the Dales Mencap Centre was completed with its official opening and renaming ceremony as the Goosecroft Centre, the home of local Mencap by the Society's President, the Rt Hon Lord Hague of Richmond on Saturday 2nd September.
The Rt Hon Lord Hague unveiled a plaque to commemorate the opening which will stand within the centre alongside the plaque unveiled by the late Lord Rix at the opening of the previous centre which stood on the same site. The Society's president gave a short speech and then spoke individually to the majority of those present.
