20th Century Society backs campaign to save the Rec

The Twentieth Century Society has backed the campaign to save Brixton Rec.

Formed in 1979, the Society “exists to safeguard the heritage of architecture and design in Britain from 1914 onwards” with a particular focus on conservation and education. Laura Chan from the Society visited the Rec recently and said, “I was heartened to hear many impassioned users of the centre say how much they value it, praising its swimming pool, climbing wall, gym and other sporting facilities, and also valuing it as a place to meet and as a local focus.”
