The Mardyke community centre in south Hornchurch stepped up to the mark once again last night when it opened its door to struggling residents with no electricity.
Due to a fire at the fuse board, residents of Orchard Village found themselves in the dark and cold without electricity. Whilst Clarion sorted out hotels to place people in, the local community centre immediately opened its doors to look after residents who were cold and with young children not knowing what to do.
Local activist Daniel Beal rallied round to help the community whilst centre manager Lesley opened up the centre to look after nearby residents in need of help. Councillor Natasha Summers jumped in to make hot drinks whilst locals waited to see where they were going to be placed.
Councillor Summers told the Havering Daily: “The Mardyke community centre is a vital lifeline for all the residents here. When problems like this arise, it is always there to support the community. Thank you to Lesley who does an amazing job opening up the doors straight away to help the families affected by the power cut. Well done to Clarion for sorting this matter out very speedily.”
For south Hornchurch residents, in particular those on the Orchard Village estate, the Mardyke Community centre is an integral part of the community and much needed for locals.
