The Goosecroft Centre.
The long awaited extension 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, on 2nd September 2017. The ceremony was performed by the Society's President, the Rt Hon. Lord Hague of Richmond.
The Rt Hon. Lord Hague unveiled a plaque to commemorate the opening which is displayed in the centre alongside the plaque unveiled by the late Lord Rix at the opening of the previous centre in 1982, on the same site.
