Black History Month Review

Northwood, Bishop John Robinson and Windrush primary schools and Acorn preschool jumped aboard Whipper Snappers* airline to the Caribbean, where they were told Anancy (black folktale) and Caribbean stories.

“Whipper Snappers were full of energy. The children loved the stories and enjoyed taking part," said the Trust's Marketing & Communications Officer, Julia Hickson.

“Northwood and Acorn were also given African drumming workshops, which they loved! You always know noise will go down well with kids.”

It wasn't only young people who got involved in Black History Month. As well as hiring Whipper Snappers, the Trust, courtesy of Arts & Events Co-ordinator, Danny, also hired a Tina Turner look-a-like* and supplied lunch at The Atrium over 50's club.

“The lunchtime celebration brought together all the over 50's groups in Thamesmead,” said Julia.

“Mini buses were laid on to transport people between their homes and The Atrium, where not only was Tina Turner waiting for them, but pie and mash and a buffet too.

“Lots of fun was had by everyone. Compliments were flooding in even before we even left the building.”

Trust Thamesmead also supported One Game, One Community: Thames Gateway Community Football Festival (affiliated to the FA) involving 16 teams from South East London.

The exciting festival uses sport to bring community groups in the Thames Gateway together to celebrate culture diversity and support the Kick Racism Out of Football Campaign.
