THE Children's Commissioner and his deputy will be visiting a community charity to talk to youngsters about the issues that concern them.

Sir Al Aynsley-Green and his deputy Sue Berelowitz are due to visit Trust Thamesmead next Wednesday as part of their Listening Tour.

The pair will be visiting Southern Arches in Harrow Manor Way, Thamesmead, which is the new location for the charity's leisure and education centre.

The charity's community development manager, Janice Songhurst-Jones, who is co-ordinating the visit, said: "They are particularly interested in visiting the Southern Arches, to establish the impact the £5 million funding from the Government's myplace initiative will have on the lives of local children and young people.

"They will be spending approximately two hours with members of Thamesmead Youth Voice who are currently working on a presentation of the Youth Leisure Zone project, which they will deliver to our guests.

"Our young people have worked exceptionally hard on this project and are very excited by the visit, which serves as a recognition of their efforts. On a personal level I am immensely proud of their commitment and their efforts to shape a positive future for themselves and their peers.
