Celebration, jubilation . . . and tessellation

Friday, 3rd June — By Charlotte Chambers

IT’S going to be a majestic mosaic making day tomorrow (Saturday) as Caxton House Community Centre make not one but two mosaics celebrating the Queen’s 70 years on the throne.

Artists and community members are repairing a mosaic that was made for the Diamond Jubilee 10 years ago but was damaged in the storms that hit London in February.

The St John’s Way centre will also be gathering local stories and a videographer will be on hand to record any memories, said finance chief Sue Collins.

She said: “We’re setting up a local stories display with old photos of the area and Caxton House itself, and some of the old projects we’ve run here and some old signage from the 70s, as well as big paintings by the after-school club, which closed 13 or 14 years ago

“We also found a sign for the milkman for how many pints of milk we want.

“But we’re also asking people to come and share their stories.”

There will also be crown decorating, the Wild Fangs animal show and the Bee-Man, as well as dance and exercise taster classes at the event, which runs from 12-6pm.
