STEP’s new community building named as “The Junction”
After much deliberation, anticipation and speculation, STEP is delighted to announce that the new community building at Beechvalley, Dungannon will be called “The Junction”. “The Junction” links to the previous use of the land on which the building is situated. It was formerly a railway halt for the historic Dungannon railway line and more recently as part of Railway Park. The name further represents the junction at which the various organisations using the centre will meet and set out on a new shared path.
STEP hope to complete their move and begin operations in the new building shortly after Easter with the other anchor tenants in “The Junction”, Willowbank and Beacon Wellbeing also opening their doors to clients at this time. A launch day for the new premises is currently being planned and it will provide the community a perfect opportunity to visit “The Junction” and find out what is on offer.
“The Junction” is part of a £7M European investment project in Dungannon, the other elements of the project delivered by Mid Ulster District Council are a new viewing tower and events space on Hill of the O’Neill, along with a new 6.9km path linking key recreational spaces in the town.
Bernadette McAliskey STEP continues: “STEP is justifiably proud of all of those who helped the local council- community partnership in making it to this junction. We hope the Junction will be a central point from which everybody can find their way to what makes life work better.”
