THE visitor centre at Daventry Country Park has reopened after receiving a makeover.

The centre closed in July while volunteers from local companies carried out a refurbishment.

Earlier in the year Daventry District Council (DDC) asked members of the public how they thought the centre could be improved.

The responses have led to enhancements such as the installation of new equipment to show nature DVDs and live video feeds, a new activity area and a general tidy-up including a new welcome banner outside.

As part of its Cummins in the Community Programme, Cummins Ltd, along with Blyth Decorators, provided volunteers to repair and paint the building, while Travis Perkins and Homebase donated paint and materials free of charge.

Cllr Alan Hills, portfolio holder for community, culture and leisure at DDC, said: “The improvements made to the visitor centre have made it much more vibrant and welcoming.”
