The Summer Project running from 10- 21 August gave 120 children and young people in Streatham the chance to take part in exciting activities. Horse riding, a trip to the seaside, West End, London Dungeon, Thorpe Park and Diggerland were some of the popular outings. The in-club activities included football, table tennis, art, cooking and barbeque.
The children especially enjoyed Diggerland, an adventure park, where you can ride, drive and operate full size construction machinery. These included dumper trucks, a police van, mini tractors and full size JCBs.
The West End Walk was one of the most popular outings. A group of 9 and 10 years olds started at the Houses of Parliament, they walked through St James' Park on the way to Buckingham Palace.The changing of the Guards was a big hit. They then went back to Horse Guards Parade and peeked in at the back of Downing Street. Youth worker, Mick revealed previously unknown skills as an historian, indentifying statues and landmarks along the way. Then using Angela's navigational skills, honed by years working in the West End, they made their way to Trafalgar Square. After a brief visit they walked through side streets to their final stop, Covent Garden.
