Ready to celebrate this holiday season? We would like to invite you to our annualChristmas Party on Saturday 13 Decemberat the community centre on Talma Road.Effra residents are organizing the afternoon and we will have plenty of stalls and taster activities organised by a variety of local community groups to celebrate the achievements of the Coldharbour Community Projects and support the Coldharbour Community First Panel.
Workshops include balloon sculpture, willowstar making, the chance to make your own perfume and jewelry, and craft stalls as well as delicious Christmas goodies.
So, if you’re curious to see what young people get up to in the computer coding club, Coder Dojo, keen to see Brixton Youth Theatre in action, or want to be creative, then come on down to the centre from 2pm to mingle, view and even join in!
In the evening, bring some food to share and booze to drink (soft drinks and free mulled wine will also be available). Get those jazz hands and hips swinging to the live band and treat yourself to something fun in the auction.

FRIDAY 19th DECEMBER
@ EFFRA SOCIAL, Brixtown Central
Be marvellous to see you all for a pre-sprout Crimbo flail about…
Oh, and while you’re flailing about you can bung a TENNER into the coffers of the fantastic Brixton boys ESHA sports club.
<Terry Wogan voiceover> Because of your super generous donations, last year we made an incredible £3000 from the inaugural ESHA gig. The cash went directly to the club and has since funded, amongst kit, footballs etc, the subs and registration costs for a number of local lads who otherwise wouldn’t be able to play for the club. Bring it on again this year people!<end of Terry Wogan voiceover>
Come and have fun and do good!
Just an update that Sunday’s Play street will include an Indoor bouncy castle and decoration workshop and will be held at the Brixton Community Base on Talma Road.
