This morning, I was fortunate to visit the site of the former Northwood Police Station and to hear about the plans the new owners, the Iron Aid Foundation, have as part of their redevelopment. It was very sad to see this historically significant building in such a state of disrepair, but I was incredibly pleased to hear that it is being fully restored to its former glory.
We are still at the early stages of this project, and the foundation are hoping to go to preplanning in the next few weeks, but once it has been completed it will not only provide a centre for their own activities, but a venue for different groups across the community.
For those who do not know much about the Iron Age Foundation, they have been operating in the area for the past 11 years. They are currently working just down the road at St John’s Reformed Church but have now found somewhere to own themselves.
