Wyn Garrett was a local resident who worked tirelessly to improve housing services for her fellow tenants.
She was the chair of the Longnor, Norfolk and Osier estate Tenant and Resident Association for many years.
She also chaired the Estate Based Committee to secure improvements to the estate. Among many other things Wyn also raised funds for humanitarian relief and devoted a lot of her time to visiting and offering support
to local victims of racial harassment.
Sadly, she passed away in 1993 and the centre was named in her honour as a testament of her contributions to the community.
