A Bracknell community hub has reopened after emergency works took place to fix a leak in the building.

On Thursday, February 29, Bracknell Forest Council announced that The Oaks Family Hub would be closed until further notice due to unforeseen circumstances.

Following the confirmed water leak in the building - which is thought to have been caused by heavy rain – it was discovered that the electrics and fire alarms had been affected.

Grainne Siggins, executive director of people, said: “The building was closed to ensure the safety of staff and families. All activities at the hub were relocated or postponed.

“Emergency work was carried out and the site was deemed safe for The Oaks to reopen.”

The family hub, which is based on the site of Great Hollands Primary School, was reopened again on Monday, March 4.

The community children's centre is a council-run organisation that provides activities, support, and information to families through casework and group sessions.

It serves the communities of Great Hollands, Wooden Hill, Jennett’s Park, Birch Hill, Hanworth, Amen Corner, Binfield, and Farley Wood.
