When City Heights secondary school was opened, a youth facility was provided by Christchurch Road for the youth of the neighbourhood. We’re campaigning to get it opened.
Sign our petition – Give Us The Youth Facilities we were promised
The facility lay dormant until the St Martins Tenants & Residents association campaigned with petitions to Lambeth council, and the facility, now called the Yellow Cube, was opened in 2016 amidst much fanfare.
It continued for a few years until it was closed, leaving youths with nowhere local to go.
We do not know why it closed. It still has enough money to provide trained youth workers to run the place, money provided by Lambeth Council. But we notice that 17 of 21 trustees have resigned over 8 years.
We in St Martins Estate want Lambeth Council to liaise with the Yellow Qube to open the building as a youth club.
We also ask the Council to suggest 2 residents of St Martins Estate as trustees.
Sign our petition – Demand the Yellow Qube is reopened
