Fun as primary schools in Manor Park throw Olympic Kids day

Parents of children from seven primary schools in Manor Park threw an Olympic party for local children on Saturday.

Held in Little Ilford Park, the Olympic Kids fun day brought the community together in celebration of the 2012 Games coming to Newham.

Helped along by a Get the Party Started grant from Newham Council, the day will included sports day activities, bouncy castles, craft tables and more.

Cheryl Blaize, chairman of the Olympic Kids group, said: “The aim of the day is to evolve and get to know our surrounding diverse communities and each other better.”
