EASTSIDE NEWS: NEW PROJECTS FOR 2019!


ORAL HISTORY ACTIVISM

 

Funded by Trust For London, this 18 month long project will support residents in Barking Thames Ward to use their stories to influence the future of a fast developing area. ECH will develop new methodologies that promote community organising to make an impact.

 

SHARING OUR SONGS

 

Funded by the Family Fund, we'll work with 6 primary schools and parents, to share cultural heritage and nursery rhymes from around the world. In line with the Mayor of London's Integration Strategy to build stronger relationships with parents and schools. 

GROWING MEMORIES

 

This project funded by the East End Community Foundation, uncovers the story of how changing communities in Stratford have seen changing diets. Using gardening and cooking, we will gather the memories and recipes of local residents past and present.

 



No such thing as a free lunch?


GROWING MEMORIES: PROJECT LAUNCH

 

 

After some great sessions, and lots of fun along the way, we've finally come to the end of our Growing Memories project. All that's left for us to do is show off the fantastic Community Cookbook that Stratford residents helped us to make. It contains a very diverse range of food memories and recipes, and is beautifully illustrated by children and young people from Stratford. As well as giving away the Community Cookbook, we are thrilled to invite you all to a free picnic lunch, to take part in gardening, and enjoy reminiscence activities to share and celebrate the people (including you!) who have made Stratford, Stratford over the years.

 

Please join us on Saturday 20th July, from 13:00 - 14:30. at Abbey Gardens (Bakers Row, E15 3NF - near Abbey Road DLR station)



It's competition time!

If you think you could do a better job than our current logo then we would love to hear from you. Our team will pick the winning entry, which must be emailed to office@ech.org.uk no later than 12pm on July 31st.
