[WATCH]Led Zeppelin's Robert Plant shows support for Wolverhampton Youth Zone

Robert Plant
Rock legend Robert Plant has appeared in a new video lauding Wolverhampton's £6 million Youth Zone as an opportunity for 'furthering the adventure of life'.

The West Bromwich-born singer and former Led Zeppelin frontman is one of several famous names to support The Way, which opened earlier this month.

Bosses have uploaded the video - which sees Plant apparently in a pub discussing the project - to YouTube. The two-minute clip also features footage of young people using the centre's facilities.

Plant, says: "I've been a life-time member of the Black Country community and I'm supporting the Wolverhampton Youth Zone. I think it's a very welcome and crucial addition to the life of kids in our area."

"I've been recently around the facility and it is all looking great. There are opportunities kids have got to come in from whatever lifestyle they have been living and actually spend a period of time in a whole new environment which is very optimistic, very get-up-and-go, very dynamic. I heartily support it."



Earlier this month youngsters and parents were given the first glimpse inside the one-stop, all-inclusive activity centre, featuring a 4G football pitch, boxing ring, dance studio, gym and sports hall. Wolverhampton council is investing more than £3m in The Way towards both the development and running costs of the project.

Other supporters include One Direction superstar Liam Payne, City of Wolverhampton College, Marston's and Carvers.

Within a week of opening The Way had signed up over 1,000 members.
