Lynne Featherstone, MP for Hornsey and Wood Green, praises Hornsey Vale Community Centre,
The MP for Hornsey and Wood Green praised a community centre in Hornsey for helping people back to work.
Lynne Featherstone MP was given a tour of the Hornsey Vale Community Centre, in Mayfield Road, when she visited last Friday.
She spoke to volunteers about how the centre is run and the services it provides.
The MP said: “It’s fantastic to visit the Hornsey Vale Centre – they continue to do great work with people of all ages in the Hornsey Vale area.
“It was really heart-warming to see the positive community impact being made by the centre’s volunteers.
“I was particularly impressed by their outreach programme, which is helping people to return to work and I wish them all the very best for future.”
The centre opened in 1991 and now hosts a range of community activities from martial arts and Zumba, to football and fashion shows.
It also has a wheelchair accessible gym which is used by groups for people with autism and respiratory disorders.
