DJ Smooth C – Young at Heart seniors party and Coin Street Community Day DJ

“I love Coin Street and all that it does for local people”

How did you hear about Coin Street?

I was born locally, but I suppose my biggest connection with Coin Street is acting as the resident DJ for the Young at Heart seniors party, which I very much enjoy! As a DJ and entertainer, I have been keeping local seniors moving and grooving at their annual get-together for the last few years. However, I have been loosely involved with Coin Street and the community for around 10 years as I have previously worked with a member of the Community Programmes team, Natalie Bell, and SE1 United on other community functions. I love Coin Street and all that it does for local people.

 What would you like to see more of?

I previously mentioned that I’d love to see Coin Street throw a big community event for both young and old local people, to give the younger generation a chance to have a dance and sing with their elders. And so I was thrilled to learn that you are now holding one in March, and I’m looking forward to being a part of it.  Hopefully, it will make the seniors feel more integrated into the community, as often I think they can feel quite isolated.
