Countdown: 5 days till Effra street party – bring old art and craft stuff down for the kids

Only five days to go now till the World Famous* Effra Street Party to be held in Mervan Road on Sunday, 1st July from noon. Bring a chair and some food to share.

We’re expecting lots of children there so we’re going to have a craft table to make things like masks to scare the adults with. This is an excellent opportunity to bring all those little bits of string, paper, tape, paper plates and glue you have lying around to donate to a good community cause. If its glittery or coloured or feathers all the better. Bring it to the craft table and the local children will turn it into Art.

Basically its a chance to magic the junk at the back of your cupboard into smiles on the faces of children, in front of your very eyes. Job done.

If that doesn’t work, we’ll also have a pink ice cream van, games, a bouncy castle and hopefully a fire engine…
