In April 2012 Mike decided to take a rest from his 20 year
trustee role on the Island Centre in St.Ives when he stood
down as chairman. The Island Centre is a youth and
community centre in the heart of Down-a-Long. Its’ prime
purpose is an out-of-school base for young people where they
can meet, play and receive support of one kind or another.
The County Youth Service delivers the youth programme
supported by a pro-active Management Committee. The Centre
has recently been re-furbished under the direction of fellow
architect, Rachael Gaunt and the assistance of a team of supporters.
