A community centre re-opened six months ago in a bid to get youngsters off the streets and out of trouble is set to host a new creative writing club.
Sutton Lane Community Centre, in Hounslow West, already runs Zumba sessions on Wednesday and Friday evenings, but this would be its first class specifically for young people.
Volunteers running the centre, just off Moulton Avenue, hope it is the first of many activities for children and teenagers to be held there.
The writing club is due to meet every Sunday morning, but the launch date and exact times have yet to be confirmed.
The centre's vice-chairman Kay Ram said: "We'd love to get more stuff in there for the children, to keep them occupied and off the streets.
"We're keen to set up a youth centre one evening a week to make young people aware this is their community and they need to look after it."
Tiny Toez nursery opened at the council-owned building last autumn, with the rent going directly to the community centre's management team to fund events and classes there during evenings and weekends.
The site, which includes a multi-use games area where young people can play basketball and other sports, has already hosted popular Halloween and Christmas events, including a Santa's grotto, since its re-launch.
There are still plenty of places available at the Zumba classes, which opened shortly before Christmas and run every Wednesday, from 6.30pm-7.30pm, and Friday, from 6pm-7pm. They cost £2.50 a session and there is no need to book.
