SMBCEC Grand opening and sign unveiling

The weather may have been a little bit dull but spirits were certainly not when so many people turned-up to celebrate the grand opening of the new St. Margaret’s Bay Community Enterprise Centre on April 26, 2018.

It was great to see how so many different groups, organizations and businesses came together to share their support of this fantastic initiative. This is exactly what the CEC is all about, bringing people together in a place that allows for networking and connecting, and this evening was certainly full of that.

After canapes and refreshments everyone went outside to see the new CEC sign being unveil, then it was back inside for the cutting of the grand opening celebration cake – beautifully made depicting the new CEC logo.

Well done to Eliot Matheson, logo and sign designer, who was presented with a prize for his winning entry into the logo competition during the event; and well done too to the CEC board and all the volunteers that made the event a complete success.
