Wornington Green Regeneration Team hosted a range of half-term activities for residents during 22-25 February at the KHT Annex, 370 Portobello Road.
The activities were designed to enhance community cohesion and encourage communities to come together and attracted over 100 residents during the week. Residents took part in a crafts workshop for both children and adults. Children enjoyed making key rings from recycled materials whilst the adults took part in a felt workshop and learned how to make different types of jewellery. Groundwork Trust also ran a gardening workshop to show residents how easy it is to plant and grow herbs in their home. Each resident was given two pots of herbs to take home.
On Thursday 24 February residents enjoyed a trip to the theatre to see the Lion King. Here is what some residents thought of the show –
‘Amazing’ Jose Rodriguez
‘One of the most fabulous, exciting musicals I have ever seen, thoroughly enjoyed it’ Miss Jendayi Am-Lak.
The week long activities were rounded off with a trip to Madame Tussauds. The activities and trips were thoroughly enjoyed by those who took part and had a positive impact on bringing the community together. ‘For the parents who have children it was well planned, it was fantastic’ Coral Gonsalves.
KHT would like to thank all the residents and children who took part in the activities; we will have regular updates on activities throughout the year. If you would like to get involved in any of our activities contact Patricia Poorman. The activities were funded through the money earned from the Gunslinger Production, Anuvahood, which was filmed on Wornington Green Estate. Anuvahood can be seen in cinemas from 18 March onwards.
