A community centre destroyed by an arson attack three years ago was officially reopened on Saturday.

Oxfordshire’s Lord Lieutenant Tim Stevenson officially reopened Dean Court Community Centre.

Hundreds flocked to the Pinnocks Way centre for a disco, barbecue and raffle.

The building was a social club until it closed in 2010 and was left derelict by a February 2011 arson attack, for which no arrests were made.

It was funded by £350,000 insurance and £35,000 raised by Dean Court Community Association.
