Work on a new health and wellbeing centre is due to start on the Isles of Scilly in the new year.
The £600,000 project at Carn Gwaval will offer a range of new facilities including a new centre for lifelong learning for the local population, a permanent new base for the memory cafe, a sensory garden and special provision for childcare.
Richard McCarthy, chairman of community services at Isles of Scilly Council, said: "The project will spread its benefits right across our local community.
"It will be a bonus too if we can throw open the doors on a job well done before the start of the summer season." The project, which will allow a variety of community schemes to operate on one site, is funded largely by grants from the Big Lottery Fund and the Isles of Scilly Local Action Group.
Work will begin on January 2 and is due for completion in early June.
