Hopeful signs for survival of the much valued Welsh Harp Environmental Education Centre
Back in August I wrote an article on Wembley Matters with the headline :
We need to firm up proposals for the future of the Welsh Harp Environmental Education Centre or it will be our children's loss LINK
Yesterday the above tweet indicated that local groups have risen to the challenge with a positive meeting of various groups interested in using the Centre, perhaps as a consortium LINK , or as sub-leasers under present lease-holders Thames 21.
The road to survival?
There is a long way to go before the future of the Centre is secured with work to be done on the financial side as well on the collaboration agreements between the groups. The initiative shows that the Centre is valued and its survival, when nature itself is under threat from climate change, is recognised as vital to bring children and adults closer to their environment and engaged in its protection.
Brent Council is the owner of the site and will need to be convinced of the long-term viability of any proposals put forward.
