Maida Vale gets a touch of magic

Several children from Tollgate estate recently got into the spirit of things during a free viewing of Disney film ‘Brave’. In an event organised by CityWest Homes, children dressed up as their favourite Disney heroes while they enjoyed the movie. The two best costumes won a prize and there was plenty of free popcorn for everyone to enjoy.

There was further fun in Tollgate when nearly 30 children enjoyed a free puppet making class. Funded by the Tollgate Regeneration Team, the workshop provided young artists with materials to create their own works of art. Parents got involved too, helping the children to sew and stick together their puppet masterpieces.

Yousef (aged six) who attended the event said: “I think this puppet is a funky version of me. I like that we can take the puppets home and I will keep mine forever.”

The workshop was so successful that we are looking to organise further events like this in the future. Don’t forget to check your village page for all the latest event details.
