COMMUNITY groups celebrate four years of projects they have been running when they stage a 'showcase' event in London's East End on Thursday.

Leaside Regeneration commissioned six organisations in 2004 to set up a network of 'community hubs' with the aim of getting more people into education, training and jobs.

Since then, the 'community hubs' have been helping 1,600 residents improve their work skills and qualifications, as well as starting up their own businesses and getting jobs.

It has also helped 400 youngsters in Tower Hamlets secondary schools and youth groups run projects such as setting up theatre companies, making documentary films and creating and selling crafts and furniture.

Now the six organisations, the Limehouse Project, Elatt, the Bromley-by-Bow Centre, Lacost Services, Poplar Harca and City Gateway, are showing just what they've achieved in four years with the Thursday evening presentations at Bethnal Green's Oxford House community centre.
