Hoardings adorned with the designs of Barking and Dagenham’s youngsters have gone up around the site of the new multi-million pound Parloes Park youth centre development.

The hoardings are based on three themes: pride in Barking and Dagenham, the future and activities you will be able to do at Youth Zone once it opens.

The youngsters worked with design company ZAK to produce the boards.

Designer Suriyaa Gnanapandithan, 15, said: “I believe ZAK has created amazing hoardings for Barking and Dagenham and with their help I believe the community will get a great understanding of the Barking and Dagenham Youth Zone.”

Council leader Darren Rodwell said: ““It has only been two months since we put the spade into the ground, but we can already see the huge progress that has been made.
