Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu cuts the ribbon to open the new Malton Community Sports Centre, watched by invited guests and all the Malton School students and staff. Then there were sports demonstrations by Malton School students, and an opportunity for guests to see the new facilities in full action.
Dr Sentamu said: "Sport, and exercise, is a wonderful part of a healthy life and a healthy community. It binds people together through their shared enterprise and a shared experience. Opening the centre has given me the chance to look around the excellent facilities which have been built here and it is exciting to see the range of sports on offer for the whole community. This sports centre is a real attraction for Malton, and I know that it will be a great blessing to all who use it.”
