Muswell Hill councillor and Lib Dem spokesperson for education, Gail Engert, has welcomed news that Haringey Council will be recruiting a new member of staff to work part-time at the Muswell Hill Centre, Hillfield Park, N10.
The youth centre in the heart of Muswell Hill is hugely popular with young people in the area. However there has been concern that at times there was not enough staff to supervise all the centre’s users. Cllr Engert has assisted local residents and the centre’s management committee in petitioning and lobbying the Council on this issue.
Yesterday Haringey Council confirmed that they would be taking steps to recruit a part-time member of staff to bring the Centre’s team up to full-strength.
Cllr Engert comments:
“The Centre is a great asset to the community and I am pleased that I been able to assist residents and the management committee in securing extra staffing to meet the demand.
“I am confident that with a full strength team the centre will go from strength to strength.”
