History of Artefact The centre was officially opened in February 1963 by Christopher Chataway (MP). The centre was run by volunteers at that time. It was created as a youth centre and it is now a community centre with sports facilities.
In the 1960s there were hairdressing courses, woodwork, music, snooker, darts and a coffee bar. This photograph belongs to the Community Centre.

Special Memories ‘You still hear people talk about the youth club in a nostalgic way and they were happy times. The staff felt as if they were providing a good social life for the kids and giving them skills. It was a close community then.’
