Although it was pouring with rain, around 50 residents attended the celebration, which offered similar activities to the our first Eid event. Councillors Louise Mitchell and Paul Douglas came along to join in the fun, with Councillor Mitchell joining Rachel in getting a beautiful henna tattoo. All the children enjoyed the arts and crafts, and cake decorations, even the teenagers joined in!
Leyton Orient Trust provided a football coach and set up a table tennis which proved popular with everyone. We invited Social Value Manager, Arjun, from Urbaser along to speak to the residents about recycling and sustainability, and are looking forward to working together with the councillors to put on some eco/green friendly community projects.
