"AT the Shop"
On Thursday 1st October, The Liberty Shopping Centre in Romford welcomed a new community hub, ‘Ageless Teenagers’ to the centre.
The initiative, that is backed by the Lottery Community Fund, was set up in 2017 by Weininger Irwin and Janice Irwin, and has since grown from 28 to over 400 members in just a few years.
Ageless Teenagers, was originally set up to allow seniors from all backgrounds to get together and enjoy a variety of activities. From musical exercise programmes to gardening and intergenerational activities, the new Romford hub will allow local people to meet new friends, unleash their ‘inner teenager’ and have fun together.
Founders Weininger Irwin and Janice Irwin were joined by The Mayor Councillor John Mylod, Centre Manager at The Liberty, Jonathan Poole and some of the Ageless Teenagers to officially open the Romford hub on Thursday 1st October.
Centre Manager at The Liberty, Jonathan Poole commented: “We are delighted to welcome Ageless Teenagers to the centre.”
“Ageless Teenagers is a fantastic addition for both The Liberty and Romford as in the current climate, it is so important that people of all ages to feel that they have somewhere safe to go to enjoy themselves and have fun.”
Founder of Ageless Teenagers, Weininger Irwin added: “We are excited to open our brand-new hub in the heart of Romford.
“Our aim is to provide a safe ‘home away from home’ for those who are young at heart, to enjoy safe activities, especially with the current situation that we are faced with. We look forward to welcoming both current and new ageless teenagers to the hub!”
