Free event tomorrow!

Don’t forget to join us at the Side Door Café, Ashford Place this Friday for fun and memory sharing.

The young Scouts, and especially their leaders Nick and Noura, have been working hard planning and bringing everything together for the events.

Local residents are invited to come and share their memories of Cricklewood, whether that’s 10, 20, or even 50 years ago! The young people will be asking questions and recording people who’d like to share their memories.

For anyone camera shy, there will be plenty of cake to keep you busy!

So come along, meet new people, and enjoy a lovely afternoon at Ashford Place with the Scouts.

2pm – 4pm, Friday 31 August @ Side Door Café, Ashford Place, 60 Ashford Road NW2 6TU

Tea & Scouts…

… and cake & memories!

Next week, Friday 31 August, sees the launch of an exciting series of events led by the Nomad Explorer Scouts, as part of the Generations of Learning project.

The free afternoon events will combine memory-sharing, speed-dating games with free afternoon tea and a chance to meet new people.

Bringing young and old together to celebrate local history, the young Scouts will be asking questions and recording the memories of people from the local area.

So, whether you came here 5 years ago or 50, whether you lived in Cricklewood, Dollis Hill, Harlesden or a little further afield, come along and share an afternoon with lovely people!

The first event is being hosted by Ashford Place in the new Side Door Café. All are welcome. Children must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times.

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.
