An armadillo in Dagnam Park Drive?
Standing on the corner of Dagnam Park Drive, onlookers might be puzzled.
Is it a bird, is it a plane plane...an armadillo?!
No, it’s a �4million giant caterpillar!
As pictured, work on Havering’s state-of-the art My Place youth centre is well underway.
The wooden beams show how the building is taking its caterpillar-like form, a symbol for change and development in the borough.
Funded by a grant from the Big Lottery after residents said they wanted more for young people to do, the centre will provide a wide range of activities.
Inside the giant caterpillar will be a juice bar, a dance and music performance space, a recording studio, a bike workshop and a computer suite.

Set to become Havering’s greenest building once complete, the centre will be an outstanding landmark for local residents to be proud of.
Provided the giant caterpillar doesn’t transform into a butterfly, My Place will be open to the public in spring 2012
