PARENTS are trying to get to the bottom of the mystery of who owns an empty community hall which would be ideal for a children's summer play scheme.
The fed up families on the Poplar's Brownfield and Teviot estates in London's East End are calling on the 'keyholders', whoever they are, to open up the 20-year-old Teviot Community Hall for the 42 children who can't get summer scheme places.
Pentecostal pastor Michael Ojoare, a member of the Brownfield estate tenants' board, said: "We can't get to the bottom of who the keyholder is."
