Cedars Youth and Community Centre Now Open

Bill Stephenson, the Leader of Harrow Council had the privilege of attending the official opening of Cedars Youth and Community Centre on Monday, 28 May.  This a wonderful new building financed by a £4.2 million grant from the Government’s ‘My Place’ programme. The new building replaces the former Cedars Youth Centre and as the name implies is particularly for young people but also for all members of the local community of whatever age.

There is a large multi-purpose sports hall, exercise gym, a cafe, a roof-top terrace, computer rooms, a cafe and a number of five a side pitches.

The building was designed by the architectural practice LOM with the help of young people and members of the local community. It has numerous environmental features. Most of all this was a celebration of the close co-operation between Watford Football Club.  and the Council who were complimentary of each other.

Graham Taylor, the former England manager and now non-executive Chairman of Watford Football Club and Neil Hart emphasized their longstanding and very fruitful work they have had with Harrow Council.

The Mayor and the Minister jointly formally opened the Centre.
