Roundwood Youth Centre
This centre is on the border of Willesden and Kensal Wards. It was officially opened today and visitors were treated to lively displays of dancing, singing and martial arts. The building itself is amazing. I remember early days of planning when a number of young people were involved in presenting ideas for its design and interior. The funding promised by government was withdrawn at one stage. Without support from the Lottery (£5 million) this splendid building may not have happened. The new centre is for young people aged 13 to 19 and is packed with facilities including: a café, IT suite, multi-use games area, media area, area for sporting activities and a performance area.
