Memories of youth

THE demolition of Henley Youth Centre, as reported on the front page, brought a tear to the eye of town councillor David Eggleton, who was once a youth worker there.

“It’s sad,” he says. “It brought back a lot of memories of all the stuff we did, like the discos and events.

“I had a motorcycle workshop in the back where the teenagers would bring their bikes to work on and we also held an all-night disco.”

David took some pictures of the demolition taking place and was allowed to take home some of the old mahogany floor at the centre, which he plans to turn into a coffee table.
