Dagenham community hall looks to the next generation

Hundreds turned out to view plans for the next phase in Kingsley Hall’s history.
Blueprints for a cafe, children’s play area and pre-school were at the heart of an open day on Thursday.
The centre in Parsloes Avenue, Dagenham, has served the community since 1929, but director Chris Kapnisis thinks it’s time to look forward.
“We want to build something for the next generation,” he said.
“We’d like it to be a good opportunity to build more of what people want. It’s a whole new season of community life.”
The centre already hosts activities seven days a week and more are starting – with residents particularly encouraged to try the free Live Well classes from the beginning of March.
The plans will be submitted in May and have been made possible by £150,000 of GLA funding.
