Last chance to take part!

This Saturday, 29 September, brings the final FREE event of our Generations of Learning project.

It has been a lot of fun and a lot of work, and we’d be delighted for people to join us for this last chance to share memories and stories of life in Cricklewood.

The local Nomad Explorer Scouts have given lots of time and energy to planning this event, and will be speaking to people and recording them, to share stories on our website. You don’t have to be recorded to take part, ‘though; if you’d rather just have tea and a chat, you are welcome!

Local residents are invited to come and share their memories of Cricklewood, 5, 10, 20, or even 50 years ago. Bring along a story.

Come meet new people, and enjoy a lovely afternoon with the Scouts. Join us on the Mezzanine, refreshments provided.

2pm – 4pm, Saturday 30 September @ The Crown Moran Hotel, 152 Cricklewood Broadway NW2 3ED

Keep an eye on the blog for stories from the project over the coming weeks.

Young & Old stories

Tomorrow’s heritage tour, Sunday 19 August, will include special performances from young actors who will bring to life some of the stories of Elders who migrated to Cricklewood and have shared their stories with us during the Generations of Learning project. They have been hard at work rehearsing and we are surely in for a treat.

NOTE: We will be taking photos and filming the young performers. We will be checking whether people are happy to be included and avoiding those who are camera shy, but do be aware filming will be taking place. Next week’s tour, on Saturday 25, will be film free!

Led by the talented and engaging Saira Niazi of Living London, the tours start at 11am at Willesden Green tube station and end in Gladstone Park at 2pm. This tour is not suitable for small children, due to the distance (about 2.5 miles). Please wear comfortable shoes, bring sunscreen and carry an umbrella, and bring water & a picnic lunch if you’d like to stick around after the tour.

Booking is not essential but places are limited to 20 people. To reserve a place, use the form on the website here.
