Mayor of Eastleigh Cllr Jane Welsh and Chief Executive Officer of Prysmian UK Paul Atkinson officially opened Cable Works a new community and learning facility on the old Pirelli site.
The new centre was funded from contributions from the housing development on the old Prysmian (formerly Pirelli) site. The community part of the building is on the ground floor and includes a pre-school service that is run by the YMCA for the local community. In the evenings the ground floor is used for community hirers.
There is also a Learning Centre situated on the first floor and comprises an IT suite, training room and interview room. The Learning Centre can be used for a range of activities including training courses, presentations, team building and launch events.
Mayor of Eastleigh Cllr Jane Welsh said “I’m delighted to open this superb new community facility and I’m pleased that we have already had such a positive response from hirers who are looking to use the excellent new Learning Centre.”
Paul Atkinson said “It’s great that this fantastic new facility helps to maintain our link with the local community. So many local people have worked for Prysmian (formerly Pirelli) in the past and with these new pre-school and training facilities many local people who use Cable Works may go on to work for the company in the future.”
