Refurbishment work at Pocklington Arts Centre is expected to be completed by early April.

At Pocklington Town Council’s recent full council meeting, councillor Graham Perry said that Hobson and Porter, the appointed builders for the refurbishment, should have completed its work at the venue during the week ending 8 April.

Coun Perry said: “We had a good meeting to see where we are up to. The finishing post is on the week starting 4 April and ending 8 April.”

After the contractor has finished its job, last minute preparations will get underway before an official opening takes place. The project is expected to cost £540,000, which includes a substantial contingency fund.
