There’s been frequent comment about the slash and burn impact of austerity on such features as youth clubs / youth support and the impact that has on their own as well as wider community wellbeing. So I was so heartened to sit and listen to Mehera outline so many positives happening in PG.

I first came across Mehera when PG won the accolade to be London’s trial site for Play Quarters where she assisted quietly, without profile, behind the scenes supporting the project leader.

That followed really significant and successful work she instigated and led in the east end while living there.

She’s a community asset for PG and should be acknowledged as such; her and the others now assisting our younger people.
