Led by local tenants leader Ernie Hearn, the story behind Colombo Street Sports and Community Centre typifies the kind of community activity that was going on. What started as a campaign to provide a long overdue local facility - in this case a small park and adjacent sports pitches in Hatfields off Blackfriars Road, led eventually to a prolonged campaign to secure a permanent indoor sports and community centre.
