"The Economic Revitalisation Peace II measure provides assistance aimed at supporting the economic transition of NI to a more stable, peaceful and prosperous society. This is demonstrated through the type of project that Laganview Enterprise Centre Limited is in the process of building.

This investment will help stimulate growth, develop potential, create jobs and facilitate skills acquisition, it will also have a positive social impact by providing a foundation for increased investment and employment opportunities for the people of Lisburn."

"Laganview Enterprise Centre should provide an opportunity to the local community to develop skills and prepare for employment locally. It is important that those who are currently struggling to find employment are assisted and Laganview will be well placed to help the people of Old Warren move forward to a brighter and better future".

HBK Architects

"HBK architects were delighted to be appointed as architects for this project following on from previous work for Old Warren Partnership in 1997 on the "Raggety Bap" houses in Avonmore Park.

Having first met with the group to discuss requirements and aspirations in 1999 it has been a long and sometimes torturous journey since navigating through the funding application and land acquisition stages and it is testimony to the patience and determination of all involved that most of the original people who played apart are still involved.

Internally the building will provide modern accommodation for the businesses that will locate there and a bright airy environment for the users of the centre. We hope that the building will bring a commercial hub to the area, become a focal point for the Estate and be one that everyone connected with Old Warren will be proud of."

The Northern Ireland Housing Executive is delighted to be able to support the Laganview Enterprise Centre by providing the land in the Old Warren estate for its construction.

The Housing Executive, through its Lisburn Antrim Street District Office, has worked with the Old Warren Community Association and the Old Warren Partnership over many years to bring about a regeneration programme that has provided residents with good quality homes set in a pleasant and inviting environment with well developed community services.

The Enterprise Centre will be a valuable resource for the community as it will provide additional services and modern meeting and training facilities. The Northern Ireland Housing Executive is pleased to be associated with this development.

"LaganView Enterpise has proved to be an excellent venue in all respects.  The hall was brilliant, very spacious and with excellent facilities, in particular access to the kitchen was great and the TV in the hall was very useful on several occasions.  I found the system of having people from the surrounding area open and lock up very efficient.  It was great not having to worry about locking up at the end of the evening and it was a relief to know that when I arrived for the start of the class the centre would be open for me.  I would have no hesitation in recommending LaganView Enterprise Centre as a venue to anybody thinking of renting the hall in the future.  Thank you to the staff for all their help and support, nothing ever seemed to be too much trouble!

SE Trust

The SE Trust have used the community hall for after work physical activities (Yoga, Pilates, Gymball, Circuits) as part of the Staff Health & Wellbeing Programme.  We have found the venue to be excellent for these classes, which can have up to 36 participants at a class.  Car parking is also very good.  We have also used this venue for workshops and have the found the service and facilities to be excellent.  There is always a friendly and helpful service when you phone to make bookings and discuss requirements.  I would highly recommend this venue.

Lisburn University of the Third Age (LU3A) represents over 270 Lisburn citizens who are retired (or semi-retired) from full time employment - but who are certainly not retired from life! We organise just under forty different activity groups encompassing all areas of social, physical, educational and artistic endeavour. Many of these activities take place in Laganview Enterprise Centre including Ballroom Dancing, Pilates, Tai Chi, Gardening and Public Speaking. Many of our combined activities also take place here - in particular our monthly meetings when over 100 people are regularly in attendance; our pre-Christmas Get-together, with similar numbers; and our Annual New Year's Ball. Centre staff are always very attentive and accommodating, and the facilities are clean, warm and inviting. Would we recommend the centre to other groups? Of course we would - as long as they don't try to pinch one of our time slots! Laganview Enterprise Centre is a sparkling gem in Lisburn City Council's crown!
