A one-stop community facility which offers a cafe, meeting rooms and will house a council opened its doors this week.

The Forum, in Towcester which will be the home of South Northants Council, Northants Council’s library service and registration office has taken a year to build.

Pictured are Sue Smith, SNC chief executive and Paul Blantern, NCC chief executive, in the atrium of the building at its official launch on Thursday.

Mrs Smith said: “Sharing this modern facility with other public services is an important move for the council. We reduce the building costs and it facilitates partnership working.”
