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.

’Twas St Pat’s eve …

… and all over London, people were getting ready to celebrate Irish culture and community.

While people are preparing to don fake red beards and giant hats for the parade in Central London, in Cricklewood we will be sticking to tradition.

At Ashford Place on Friday 16 March, there will be a Bacon & Cabbage meal, followed by live music and quite possibly dancing.

Two scones, jam and cream, with a cup of teaBetween 2-4pm, there will also a chance to enjoy some cake and share some memories with the Generations of Learning team. We will be looking at photos and other memorabilia from the 1950s and 1960s and chatting over old times.

Please drop in and join us; bring your own memorabilia and memories and we’ll provide the tea and cake!

There will also be a chance to preview our exciting new film.
