Prominent local residents Gregg Dyke, John Stapleton, Lynne Faulds Wood and Sue Howes voice concerns for Heatham House calling on the council to ensure any alternative is delivered before Heatham House is sold off.
Welcome to the new Friends of Heatham House website.
We would like to invite you to become a friend of Heatham House. We believe that Heatham House is a brilliant Youth Centre that should continue to provide a unique offering to Young People, and your support will help make sure this happens.
You may be a current or ex-member of Heatham House, or a parent or member of the community, who would like to show their support: you can do this from anywhere via this website. Better still you can attend a meeting or a fundraising event in person, we will be posting dates with venues here.
If you can spare a little more time then organising a fundraising event or sharing your area of expertise would be brilliant. We will also need people willing to join committees and working groups. We welcome offers from individuals, organisations and businesses. Last but not least you can make a donation to help us move forward.
We would like you to help us build the content of the site with stories and photographs and information. On this website you will be able to find out exactly what Friends of Heatham House is about. If you register, you will get news about current issues, event and meetings relating to the centre. We hope to see more information about Heatham House itself - both about the building and its history; as well as the youth projects and activities that we are trying to support; and your stories and photographs!
So the first thing we would like you to do is to sign up, to show your support for Heatham House.

Final call to adults living or working within the borough to get involved with the Twickenham Town Centre AAP and state they want to keep Heatham House. Closes on the 10th February, so get your skates on.
A simple, effective statement the voices our opinion and tells the council that the people have a right to decide and not via a consultation full of misleading statements.
This is a pretty good video outline what Heatham House does, a great way to introduce people who’ve never been there to the basics at least! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rxsRwx56onk
An absurd statement when you consider it. Cllr Percival appears ill informed and makes wild claims regarding meetings and phone calls that have never taken place.
Do you have any photos or video footage from Heatham House?
We’re currently trying to build an archive of images and videos that show’s everything the club has encompassed in the last 60 years.
