Former England cricket legend Phil Tufnell was invited along to mark the occasion and officially opened the facility with Whitehill Mayor, Leslie Webber.
Guests at the event were treated to live music and creative displays which took place throughout the day, provided by local groups and clubs.
It was a day of total celebration, where the community came together to illustrate what the BOSC can – and will – mean for all who use it. James Child, project lead at the Regeneration Company told the Bordon Herald, “The launch of BOSC marked a significant day for the regeneration work taking place in the area. “Mixed – use facilities, such as the BOSC, offer communities a hub to stay active, socialise and celebrate. It has been a key aim, as part of our Healthy Town status, to ensure that we are creating high – quality provision for this.
Working with the Whitehill & Bordon Regeneration Company, a Dorchester Regeneration and Taylor Wimpey joint venture for the Defence Infrastructure Organisation, Mildren remain key in helping to build a new community.
Simon French, Managing Director of Mildren Construction said: “We’re delighted to have been so involved in this project and the main contractor on site.“The newly opened Bordon and Oakhanger Sports Centre (‘BOSC’) provides a club room with bar, toilets and changing rooms and showers at ground floor level. Easy access to the first floor via lift and stairs leads to a function room with bar, office and further toilets. The upper level also provides a kitchen with store.
“We’re all absolutely delighted to have been selected for the build and fit – out of the entire BOSC Pavilion – a continuation of our existing works in and around the Whitehill & Bordon Area.”
