The Reaching Communities team supported the annual Eastwood Fun Fest again this year. The theme was Eastwood By The Sea and young people and their families enjoyed sand, deck chairs and donkey rides, as well as a stage jam packed with performances and stalls offering free activities to all.
Young people took part in the highly competitive and skilful game ‘Myplace Pong’, where they could win a top prize of a lolly!
They also created a colourful canvas that is now proudly displayed in the Youth Space at Myplace.
Jes Tokarova and Mario Gabor performed on stage alongside Reaching Communities Project Coordinator, Nicola Harding. They performed two songs, ‘Love Yourself’ by Justin Bieber and ‘Still Not Speaking’ by Nic Harding. Jes wrote her own rap for ‘Still Not Speaking’ and Mario kept everyone in time with his Cajon playing!
It was a great event, celebrating the magic of the local community spirit and promoting community cohesion within Eastwood. As always, Myplace were proud to be a part of it.
