Time for a Get Together!

Tuesday 20th March 2018 at William Morris Community Centre, 6-8 Greenleaf Road, E17 6QQ

Our next community Get Together event is on Tuesday 20th March and is going to be a great evening filled with delicious food, presentations, performances, and a chance to meet with the people involved with William Morris Big Local and hear what’s going on. It’s been a little while since our last event and loads has happened since so that means it’s going to be absolutely jam packed full of interesting stuff.

On the night we will be unveiling our new plan for improving the local area with our key focus for it being; Strengthening the Community, Improving Outdoor Spaces and Supporting Enterprise.  These themes have been developed by local residents who sit on the partnership using information and feedback we’ve collected from the community since the beginning of the Big Local programme. We’ve got a host of activities and projects lined up for the next 3 years that local people and groups can get directly involved with to help us make the vision of improving our area a reality.

Just Play! – WM Games Club

There is a saying that goes “we do not stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing”.  Well at Big Local we felt it was time to roll back the years a bit and so from March onwards we will be hosting a table top games club for adults of any age to join. We’ll be breaking out a load of classic games from cards and dominoes to draughts and board games. Ludo seems to be a popular request and we’re happy to play whatever! The sessions will be hosted by our super friendly volunteers and they’ll be refreshments served up alongside. There are also rumours of us getting a Carrom Board which is a traditional Asian game kind of like a playing pool with draught pieces. We can’t wait to try it and Mr Khan one of our volunteers is going to teach us. Sessions are free to attend with only a small donation asked for the refreshments that are served up.
