Harold Hill youth centre holds Christmas Market
A Christmas Market took place at Harold Hill’s newest centre for young people.
The Myplace Christmas Market welcomed around 350 people for festive entertainment and shopping.
Christmas shoppers were able to pick up personalised gifts including candle holders and baubles, as well as sweet treats and home-made cards.
Many of the gifts for sale had been made by a group of 15 young people as part of an enterprise project.
The project aimed to boost their employment chances by teaching them about business.
