15th Dec 2011, FULHAM

Works4U played a large part in organising and running the opening event of the brand new £1million children’s and community centre on the Fulham Court Estate. The centre was officially opened by Hammersmith and Fulham Council Leader, Councillor Stephen Greenhalgh.

Works4U was responsible for organising and coordinating the event and the Element Six volunteers on the day..

The Tudor Rose centre replaced a crumbling 20-year-old prefab building and combines a ground-floor children’s centre for families with children under five and a first-floor community centre which is able to host everything from youth groups to healthy eating classes. The children’s centre at the Tudor Rose is run by the Pre-School Learning Alliance who also run four other centres in the borough.

The opening event was sponsored and run by Element Six, which is the global leader in the design, development and production of synthetic diamond supermaterials.

Works4U organised 43 Element Six volunteers in making the day a success, arriving in the morning, decorating the centre in preparation for the party and even creating a convincing Santa’s Grotto for the event. The volunteers were then on hand all day to ensure that the event went well, and were there to provide information, advice and assistance to both visitors and staff. Element Six volunteers even donned elf and bear outfits to help run the grotto and the bear hunt around the estate.

Cllr Stephen Greenhalgh said: “While many local authorities have chosen to close their children’s centres, we have kept all of ours open and even managed to open a new one, bringing the total in the borough to 16. I know that the Tudor Rose is already proving to be very popular. As more people learn about the Tudor Rose building I hope it will encourage other groups to use the facilities.”

The Tudor Rose houses tenants' and residents' association activities, mother and toddler groups, family learning, healthy eating classes, employment advice, council outreach services and community services.\

Both Hammersmith & Fulham Council and the Pre-School Learning Alliance were delighted with the way the party was run and put together and expressed their sincere thanks following the event.
