This outstanding summer club 2015, was all about, firstly, having fun and enjoying ourselves throughout the holiday. The club has been running for 5 weeks, Monday to Friday for 4 hours.

At the summer club we did art, sports, gardening, cooking and we have been recently working on junk modeling which will be shown on the last day. We have also done foraging and whatever we have collected, we have made it into jam and sold it to parents. Some of the children have quoted on what they enjoyed this year.

Jade said, “I enjoyed junk modeling because I got lots of support in making it and I have taken my learning to make things at home.”

Jaime said, “My favorite thing was sports because it was fun and I learnt some new skills.”

Harrison said, “I enjoyed summer club because I made new friends and I loved doing everything.”

Joshua said, “I enjoyed cooking because I got to try many new foods.”

Chyna said, “I loved sports because I am getting a lot of exercise and I am learning new games.”

To come to summer club or to after school club, you must firstly register at the reception in the front of the Community Centre. Then you can come along in term time on Tuesday (homework), Wednesday (cooking), Thursday (art) and junior youth on Friday. By registering you can come to the summer club too!

We all look forward to summer club next year in 2016. Hopefully others will want to participate in our scheme. We had lots of fun this year!

Maternity Champions & Old Oak Centre hit W12 Festival

August 6, 2015 in News by Old Oak Centre

Old Oak Centre had a great time attending the W12 Festival on Saturday 25th July.  The festival now in its third year celebrates the vibrant community in Wormholt and White City.

The festival was packed full of things to do, including stalls from local businesses, Caribbean and India food, a Ferris Wheel and huge inflatables.  There was lots of local service providers there too.  As well as a main stage with local artists performing throughout the day.

Old Oak Centre pitched up a spot next to Old Oak’s Maternity Champions in the ‘health and wellbeing’ section.  Elly, the Centre’s Community Outreach officer chatted to loads of local H&F residents about the different services they might be interested in at the centre.  We were also giving out free Book Start Packs for families with children under 1 and other Family Mosaic goodies.

Maternity Champion’s Project worker Carmella Obinyan (with her volunteers Heba and Sabrina) focus was on promoting Oral Health.  They had fruit and children’s tooth brushes to give away.  As well as promoting over health topics such as Vitamin D and healthy eating.
