Getting the party started in Newham!

Let’s get the party started! Newham Council is hosting an event to help residents get into the party spirit and be part of the celebrations for the 2012 Games.

The event at the Old Town Hall, Broadway, Stratford, on Saturday (October 8) is open to anyone who has big ideas for bringing the community together or who wants help in arranging their own celebration.

Mayor Sir Robin Wales said: “We are organising an exciting programme of events for the whole community next year. We want people to either be part of one of our events or organise their own.

“Hosting an event is the perfect way to bring the whole community together, so if we like your idea we could support you with funding. We will show the world we know how to party.”

There are two sessions from 10.30am to 12.30pm or 2 to 4pm. To reserve your place at either email or call (020) 3373 3793.
