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.

Sun, Sand and Success at Westbourne Summer Festival

Thursday, July 11th, 2013

The Beach at the Westbourne Summer Festival 2013With temperatures of 30 degrees, ice cream at the ready and a real, yes real sandy beach, the Westbourne Summer Festival held on Sunday 7th July, was an event enjoyed by many members of the local community.

The afternoon hosted by Chris Paradox brought together a number of organisations such as Westbourne Family Centre and Westminster Adult Education Services who pitched information stalls whilst children enjoyed face painting and time in the bouncy castle during an afternoon of entertainment and fun for all the family.

The festival also saw a host of local talent take to the stage from the likes of youth choir Lyric Voices to rock n’ roll from bands Scud Penguin and Crash Report who brought the afternoon to a close in style. The talent didn’t end there though, as the festival also had amazing food on offer from the classics of burgers and ice cream (not together obviously!) from JS catering to the exotic flavours of West African Cuisine.

All in all, the event which saw Westbourne Green transformed into ‘Costa Del Westbourne’ for the day was a great success, bringing a variety of fun filled activities to the area and a real feel -good factor to the local community.
