I hope this bulletin finds you well!
Today I am writing to you about The Brunswick Club for Young People, located in Haldane Road just off the Clem Attlee Estate in Fulham.
Shockingly, Labour-run Hammersmith & Fulham Council are ending the club’s funding for teenagers. It will no longer receive any financial support from the council for their youth provision for 11 to 19 year-olds. This would affect 100 -150 young people who attend the senior youth club sessions each week.
The club was founded in 1949 with donations by British ex-Prisoners of World War II held in Brunswick, Germany. The strong traditions and values of the Club have seen it continue to thrive to the present day. Families across generations have been members. This continuity underpins the Club ethos “Brunswick 4 Life, Friends Forever”.
The Club has a membership of over 1,000 young people and is the most populated youth club in the borough. It is a key part of our Fulham community and I have served as Trustee of the club for over 20 years.
Local teenagers need The Brunswick Club. Help me protect its funding, by signing my petition!
