Second Avenue Resource Centre was established in 1995 and offers activities and services to the local community, from the very, very young to 90 years and beyond! The Resource Centre moved to new premises in July 2014 and is now known as Centre4.
The building is looking great - really vibrant, fresh and modern. Centre4 has a beautifully refurbished hall which is available for conferences, larger meetings and productions. If your organisation is looking for an office or meeting space we have a range of rooms available for rent or hire - please get in touch.
If your organisation needs a permanent base and you offer a service that benefits the residents of North East Lincolnshire, the Resource Centre has office space available to rent at competitive rates. Contact us for further information regarding the size and cost of the rooms available.
Services available within the Centre include photocopying facility, meeting/conference rooms, cleaning service and more.
