It’s Katherine Low Settlement’s 90th birthday year and Easter is upon us, so to celebrate we held an Easter Egg Hunt for 110+ families on Tuesday. It was a joyous affair, eagerly anticipated by the young ones who could barely contain their excitement as they arrived. Many came in fancy dress, others had their faces painted. All had one thing on their mind. Chocolate.
And then they were off, following the trail (well most of them did) around Fred Wells Gardens, solving the clues and discovering the eggs. One little boy was so successful, such was his enthusiasm, that he found 50 eggs! And was asked to kindly put some back for the others. All the children came away with a sugar rush, plus chocolates and prizes, kindly donated by local businesses (thank you).
Hana from our Love To Learn project, said to me afterwards, that what she’d really enjoyed seeing was the variety of different people coming together, from KLS’ family of partners and services. Community in action.
My thanks must go to Anita and Michael, and everyone else that mucked in and helped. They all did a fantastic job in organising such a great day.
Our next 2 events are:
- 1st May, 6pm, Battersea Question Time – an opportunity to ask the questions you want from local candidates standing in local elections.
- 17th May, 11am, KLS’ Official Birthday Party – an open house event for all local residents and groups to help us celebrate our 90th birthday.
Do come and join us. In the meantime do have a very Happy Easter.
