Stumbled across the official website for the Surrey Canal Indoor Sports Centre today. Its pretty snazzy and has an interesting timeline of what has happened at the site so far. They have also included some of the facts about New Cross, some are a bit silly if you ask me. For example:
1/3 of young people in New Cross are unemployed – because most of them are students.
1/3 of all people in New Cross have no qualifications – because most of them are students, they haven’t finished studying.
Life expectancy is 5 years below national average – because we like to get drunk, its a small price to pay.
