Proudly Supporting the Welsh Harp Environmental Education Centre
A busy hub for community and outdoor activities
The WHEC is located in a 15 acre woodland, with ponds, a stream, meadow and indoor teaching facilities. It provides outdoor learning and community volunteering opportunities and is a base for many waterway improvement projects taking place across north west London.
The centre was closed down in 2016 due to council cuts but has since re-opened thanks to an arrangement between Brent Council and Thames21 under the town hall’s ‘Community Asset Transfer’ policy, allowing the centre to continue as a valuable educational resource for local schools and children.
For over 20 years the centre has relied on the local community's council, schools, businesses and charitable organisations. We were delighted with the opportunity this year to volunteer by providing our ground work services in order to help ensure the location is safe for future school activities and field trips. Some of our own employees have fond memories of visiting the site in their school days and it's an activity that most people who grew up in the local area will remember.
