Sally Chacatte, W4 Youth founder and chair said: “It was great to be joined by Bretford FC Community Sports Trust and Rocks Lane Sports Trust for such a successful fun community event in Southfield Recreation Ground on Saturday 30 September. We held the joint event to engage the community in the progress of our plans for the new W4 Youth & Community Centre as well as other potential spaces for new activities and to get feedback on what more the local community would like to see.”

Ms Chacatte added: “We had some great suggestions including the usual sports to yoga and stargazing and we’ll be sending out a survey to people in the community who were unable to attend the event to get more feedback to inform the plans for the future. A special thanks to the Mayor of Ealing for coming along to support us.”
