Tabard After School Project says ‘thank you’ to camapigners

Tabard After School Project has hosted a thank you party for all those who campaigned during the summer holidays to find it a new venue.

Tabard After School Project says ‘thank you’ to camapigners

The celebration comes just three months after Charterhouse-in-Southwark gave TASP notice to quit the Rainbow Building. The troubled Charterhouse charity has now closed all its buildings and TASP is using the Decima Street Tenants' Hall.

There was a full attendance of children for a tableau followed by refreshments. Among those present was Juliet Smith who in July had read an emergency statement on behalf of worried parents at a late night sitting of Borough & Bankside Community Council. Cllr Danny McCarthy, one of the councillors who was present at the meeting, was another guest.

TASP has permission to use the Tenants' Hall for 18 months. Meanwhile urgent discussions are taking place to secure a permanent home for the club which provides a safe haven for under elevens between leaving school and being collected by working parents.

Children come from a number of schools including Boutcher Primary School, Cathedral School, Charles Dickens Primary School, St Joseph's Catholic Primary School and Townsend Primary School.
