Potters Bar community centre benefits from council grant
A COMMUNITY centre in Potters Bar has been given a welcome grant by the leader of Hertfordshire County Council.
Cllr Robert Gordon, who represents Goffs Oak and Bury Green, allocated �1,000 from his locality budget to The Clayton Centre in Barnet Road.
The money will be used to help the centre run a range of free events for residents from Potters Bar and the surrounding area.
Clayton Centre chairman Tony Osler said: “We hold about four or five events every year, such as tea dances for the elderly and discos for people with disabilities.
“The events are always free for the people who attend, so we need money and it can be difficult to raise funds.

“We are therefore extremely grateful for this donation, as it will help us put on several events in the future.”
Cllr Gordon said: “It is organisations such as this one, providing enjoyable activities for residents, which are the lifeblood of a community.”
