Westbourne Summer Festival 2014

Saturday, May 10th, 2014

Westbourne Festival Summer 2013The Westbourne Summer Festival is back on Sunday 22nd of June 1pm – 5pm.

After last summer’s beach party, we are moving even closer to the water for this year’s day of fun.

Since Westbourne Green is currently occupied by the Thames Water’s works, the festival will be taking place next to the canal.

Local resident Sara Hamid has been appointed as a Events Coordinator by Paddington Development Trust, and will be very busy over the next months to ensure this year’s festival will be one to remember. Sarah will be working alongside local residents and community organization, as well as City West Homes.

Expect plenty of fun activities for the whole family, sport activities, bouncy castle, musical performances and plenty more!

Eggs..traordinary Easter Party

Thursday, May 1st, 2014

Over 130 people attended Westbourne Park Family Centre’s Early Years Easter Party on April 10th .

Our normally spacious hall was jammed packed with excited and chatty children and adults.  Creative activities, a dance and movement session, the Easter story and food and drink were shared with a small Easter egg given to every child.

People from all and no faith backgrounds were able to mix, socialise and learn about the Easter Story in a relaxed and fun environment.

Westbourne Park Family Centre provides a warm welcome to children and their parent carers of 0-4 years old every Tues – Friday from 10.00am-12.00pm during school terms.  There is a toy library with 300 toys to play and borrow on Tuesday and Friday, a creative session with a dance workshop on Wednesday and a general play session on Thursday.  The drop in sessions cost £1 to attend and is open to all.

Part of the flood alleviation work that Optimise (Thames Water’s contractors) needs to carry out, will be in local parks – Westbourne Green and Tamplin Mews Gardens. The start of the work in the parks has been delayed for a number of reasons but Thames Water are hoping to start work shortly.

Optimise and Active Westminster are working together to provide alternative activities while there are construction works in both parks. In April, Step Up to Fitness classes and other activities will be ongoing.

The Pit 1Optimise is working with Westminster City Council to landscape The Pit on Harrow Road. They would like to have your opinion about the plans, and will be holding a drop in from 4.30pm until 7.00pm on Tuesday 25 February at the Warwick Community Hall, 300 Harrow Road, so drop by and give your views about these proposals.
