A DANCE studio, new gym, IT suites, cafe and classrooms form part of the newly refurbished Peter Paine Centre on the outskirts of Boston.

The official opening of the Peter Paine Centre took place last week in the presence of College governors and staff, and Mayor Colin Brotherton.

The Centre's refurbishment has been years in the making and has seen significant changes made to the once dilapidated building.

Improvements totalling £1 million have also included the changing rooms and sports halls being modernised for the use of the Boston College and the community.

A college spokesman said: "We are absolutely delighted to have been able to regenerate the centre for the benefit of our students and the community. The Centre has been at the heart of Boston's sporting community and we hope that the renovations will continue to provide opportunities for the town."

The Peter Paine Performance Centre is now a specialist environment for the College's sports and performing arts students, with sports students in particular being able to benefit from learning in a real working environment, utilising their qualifications in gym instructing and fitness training to gain work experience at the centre.

Plans are also being put in place to encourage more members of the public to utilise the building for events and community and sports engagement.

Mayor of Boston Colin Brotherton added: "It is an honour to be here to officially open the Peter Paine Performance Centre, it's wonderful to see the building come back into use for the benefit of the town."
