Today, Jacob Young MP, visited the site of the new St. Hilda's Church on Roseberry Road in Redcar and was impressed with the progress.
The Church itself has been a cornerstone of the community for many years, and the new build promises to act not just as a Church, but as a community centre throughout the week too.
Commenting on the build, the Redcar MP agreed: "It's great that they've decided to do this for the community and it's good to see this area of Roseberry Road being redeveloped in the way that it is."
The construction company responsible for the new build, Wharton Construction, are a local firm and enjoyed chatting to Jacob about the work they do, including the hiring of apprentices across the local area. Two of which are working on this project. As a previous apprentice himself, Mr. Young was delighted to see such opportunities being offered to young residents.
He stated: "These sorts of opportunities give people the skills that they need to go on in later life and have the careers that they want. So it's great that Wharton Construction have taken on these apprentices."
Hopefully, the new Church will be ready to open to the public next year. Jacob and many other residents can't wait to see the results.
