which most of you will know well from their stables near to the Loughborough Estate. They make a brilliant contribution to giving local children wider opportunities which are normally closed to inner city families of limited means. The manager has said that after 10 years on the Loughborough estate site, they are planning their first building expansion by adding an extra railway arch this year for a youth and community space.
