Whitton Youth Zone re-launch
Dozens of local young people were joined by the Mayor of Richmond, councillors, the police, the local MP, community outreach group ‘Gloves up, Knives Down’, and youth workers at the re-launch of Whitton Youth Zone last week.
Whitton Youth Zone is operated by Achieving for Children in the heart of Whitton. It already offers a great range of activities for young people and now has a really well-equipped gym, courtesy of equipment donated by Matrix Fitness, who also provided boxing equipment from Hatton Boxing and arranged training for the Youth Zone’s staff so they can deliver boxing sessions to young people.
Police cadets and young people from both Whitton Youth Zone and the local community also spent time tidying the community garden and planting seeds.
Find out more about the re-launched Whitton Youth Zone on our AfCinfo website.
