Cambridge's Arbury Community Centre is going from strength to strength with a record number of visitors in the last year.

A new board of 10 trustees has also been formed with the number representing a significant increase on the previous year.

Newly elected Chair of the Association, Jo Richards said, "It's a tribute to the hard work that has been put in over the past year that at a time when companies and individuals have been cutting back, we have attracted a record 51,500 visitors."

Newly elected Vice Chair Cllr Mike Pitt added, "The centre offers everything from aerobics, and cheerleading to social enterprise, stamp collecting and yoga. It's good to see that the local community is getting more and more use out of this valuable resource and I'm excited to be involved."

Year on year usage of the community centre has increased by almost six per cent despite the economic downturn and there are plans in place for a regeneration of part of the centre in 2011.
