Chang­ing times at Ken­ton

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY LIFE - JC RE­PORTER

MAC­CABI’S KEN­TON cen­tre has a new name — Ku­lanu, the He­brew for “all of us to­gether” — as part of a re­de­vel­op­ment pro­gramme.

For­mer Mac­cabi GB chair­man Richard Feld­man, who has been in­volved in the Ken­ton cen­tre since its in­cep­tion 30 years ago, said: “Changes had to be made for the cen­tre to re­main rel­e­vant. A view was taken that the tra­di­tional Jewish youth club, cater­ing for fixed age groups, was no longer an ap­pro­pri­ate model.”

Af­ter ex­ten­sive re­fur­bish­ment, the premises now in­clude a mod­ern cush­ioned gym floor and a snooker room with full-sized ta­ble.

As part of a new pro­gramme of youth, sport and com­mu­nity ac­tiv­i­ties, there will be coach­ing in foot­ball, cricket and bas­ket­ball. And to reach a wider au­di­ence, there are plans for ul­pan classes, com­puter cour­ses, Pi­lates and keep-fit.

A creche has been pro­vided so that adults tak­ing part in morn­ing ac­tiv­i­ties can drop off their chil­dren.
