We had a great Jubilee themed community art and craft fete at the end of May which over 50 people attended. Admission, participation and refreshments were free thanks to support from the National Lottery Community Fund.


This event was followed by jubilee themed art and craft activities at the Leigh on Sea Jubilee Picnic. Although it rained most of the time the event was well attended and over 100 people joined in with our activities.


During Whitsun half term we provided free Jubilee themed art and craft activities for families at Chaucer House family housing scheme and at Leigh on Sea Community Centre.


This year is our 30th anniversary, and, after a two year gap, our Annual Exhibition of Works is returning on 30th June to Hadleigh Old Fire Station. We are open to the general public from 12 to 4, please drop in and see what we do.


We managed to provide services throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. At first we delivered bags of craft items to our regular attendees, then started to run sessions via Zoom and made some instructional videos.


Financially we managed to keep going thanks support from the National Lottery Community Fund, Southend Community Investment Fund, Southend Emergency Fund and many others.


Since we fully re-opened we have started three additional sessions. We are running a weekly all year after school for Barons Court Junior School in Westcliff and several blocks of sessions for residents of Sanctuary Housing and for a group for youths with special needs.
