A group of teenagers have published a magazine which aims to teach schoolchildren about the heritage of the area they live in.

Now & Then is Haringey's first youth heritage magazine and it was launched at the 639 building in High Road, Tottenham, on Saturday, November 25.

It was part of a project set up by a Lightup Foundation, which was set up after the 2011 London riots and it aims to prevent similar a reoccurrence of the violence, opportunistic looting, vandalism and arson.

The charity believes that by educating people about their area’s heritage there will be a sense of ownership in the community making people less likely to destroy.

The teenagers all received award plaques and their training certificates which were presented to them by the Mayor of Haringey, Councillor Shelia Peacock.

More than 40 people attended the event including parents, politicians, businessmen and representatives from Haringey Borough Council’s.

Copies of the magazines have been sent to schools and clubs across the borough.
