With building work progressing well on site, completion edges closer for Croydon’s £6.5million Legacy Youth Zone.
Set to open in Selhurst this summer, Legacy Youth Zone will be a safe and inspiring place for young people aged 8-19 and up to 25 for those with additional needs to spend their leisure time.
Offering over 20 activities per night for just 50p per visit, the Youth Zone will provide young people with somewhere to go, something to do and someone to talk to.
With roof finishes completed in recent weeks, the Youth Zone is now fully watertight. Glazed windows have been installed throughout the Youth Zone, giving a more finished look to the exterior.
The upcoming weeks will see contractors turn their attention to internal electrical works before starting work on the internal walls.
Once completed the Youth Zone will host an indoor climbing wall, 3G kick pitch, dance and drama studio, fully equipped gym, sports hall, music room with recording studio, martial arts gym, training kitchen and much more, all available to members for just £5 per year and 50p per visit.
Barnabas Shelbourne, Chief Executive of Legacy said: “It is fantastic to see the Youth Zone taking shape, what an amazing addition to Croydon, Legacy Youth Zone will make. In just a few months we will welcome thousands of new members to the Youth Zone, providing them with a safe and inspiring place where they are able to access the support they need to realise their dreams and achieve their full potential. We can’t do this without support from the local community, so please get in touch about supporting this life-changing charity”
