Memories Made!

Thanks to everyone who came to share fun and memories at the Cricklewood Garden Festival.

And well done to everyone on the Town Team committee for putting together an great day celebrating the town green.

As well as sharing the heritage of Irish and Pakistani communities in Cricklewood, we heard stories from people who’ve come from around the world to live in NW2.

We made beautiful bags with people from:

Bulgaria | Sudan | Pakistan | Japan | Ireland | Morocco | Algeria | China | Australia | Dominica | Costa Rica | Jamaica | England | Eritrea | The Philippines | Nigeria | Bangladesh

Check out some of their creative designs:

As space around the table is limited, sessions will run for 30 minutes at: 12.30, 1.30, 2.30, 3.30 & 4.30 – First come first served.

The heart of our project is getting people to share their memories and celebrate their stories of life in Cricklewood. We have focused on the Irish and Pakistani communities, but we’re looking forward to meeting everyone.

See you there!
