A new youth centre for Stoke Newington
On Saturday we went along to the opening of Young Hackney Stoke Newington - a new centre for young people locally.
The centre was funded as part of the previous Labour Government's Myplace project - developing high quality youth centres in local neighbourhoods.
The centre in Stoke Newington is just off Howard Road on the Milton Gardens Estate and is currently open from Tuesday-Friday until 9pm with a range of activities from homework support, health and fitness, cooking projects and services provided by voluntary and community partners. The centre specialises in ITC provision and there is a brand new multi media suite.
It's a great new centre, designed and developed by young people, and we're keen to see young people from across the Stoke Newington neighbourhood get involved.
If you are a young person locally who wants to get more involved - come along to the Stoke Newington Youth Forum which is meeting tonight at 4.30 at 63 Clissold Road.
