The social history of Wester Hailes

The New Woods Youth Centre

During his series of posts on Wester Hailes, Adam Dudley has referred in detail to the building of the Woods Youth Centre and the hopes and hard work of the community in their support for this project.  The Sentinel featured the Woods Centre as its opening day drew closer.  As you can see from the article, local people formed the management committee and there is an interview with their latest recruit.  The group wrote to many famous people and organisations to ask for letters of support for the Centre.  They received replies from a wide range, including Elton John.  They felt their most favourable response had come from football clubs with replies from Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United.  Click here to read the article in full.
