I've just heard that there was a fire last night at the Eltham Centre on Archery Road, in my ward. It is thought it was caused by an electrical fault, and although the fire was contained and structural damage is slight, there has been severe damage to the building's electrics in places. This means the centre could be closed for some time.
Council staff have been on site today with fire brigade investigators, and a group of senior council officers will be meeting tomorrow after further investigations have taken place to establish the full extent of the damage. It is hoped the library may still be able to open, although this is currently uncertain.
I'm grateful to the Council leadership for passing on updates, and further information will be posted on the website, which currently has this notice posted.
