The Centre in Scovell Road opened in September 1984 on freehold land donated by Racal Vodafone to Southwark Council on condition that it was occupied by a community centre.

Guests at the celebration on Saturday included newly married deputy mayor Neil Coyle who was accompanied by his wife Sarah, Bermondsey & Old Southwark MP Simon Hughes and cathedrals ward councillors Adele Morris and Maria Linforth-Hall.

During the evening committee chair Pat Notton praised the many volunteers who had run and maintained the centre so successfully.

A toast was proposed to past supporters who had died during the thirty years including Cllr Hilary Wines.

Also present was Chris Mikata, the manager of the adjacent Stones End Day Centre which celebrated its anniversary on Friday.
