New community centre in South Harrow opens its doors
A new community centre for the borough’s voluntary groups has officially opened its doors to the public.
The Carramea Community Resource Centre, in Northolt Road, South Harrow, was opened last week by Harrow Borough Council.
The authority hopes the building will offer affordable office space for voluntary organisations to use on a pay-as-you-go basis.
The new centre includes space for up to 100 different groups and has meeting rooms, counselling rooms and an IT suite.
The building is now operated by charity Carramea which has been running computer classes at the site for many years.
Cabinet member for Community and Culture Cllr Manji Kara said: “This new centre will offer invaluable space for Harrow’s voluntary organisations to use at affordable rates – keeping their overheads to a minimum and freeing up funds to spend on the vital work they do.
“None of this would have been possible without a strong partnership between the Council and voluntary sector, which we hope to continue building on in the future.”
Chairman of Carramea Elmore Purcell said: “We believe that this new Community Resource Centre will be very important for the community in Harrow.
“Carramea is committed to bringing people together and providing practical, step by step assistance so that all people, regardless of race, creed or circumstance can achieve their full potential.”
