SERVICES for older people in Cumbernauld are set for a £1.2 million upgrade with the replacement of a day centre.

The Antonine Older People’s Day Centre in Seafar, which opened in 1994, is to be torn down and replaced by a purpose-built facility.

North Lanarkshire Council had planned to spend £500,000 on refurbishing the centre.

But when other problems with the building raised restoration costs to £850,000, it was decided that it would be more efficient to replace the centre.
