Pirating parents and yo-ho-ho-ing youngsters embraced a plunderer’s paradise on Friday.
Inspired by The Pirates of the Caribbean film, “A Pirate’s Christmas for me” saw visitors to Play, Sow and Grow community hub in Stratford embark on a wealth of fun-filled activities.
A treasure juice bar, pirate music, pirate flags and ocean and beach backdrops were just some of the delights to bring out everyone’s inner pirates at the Three Mills Estate free evening.
The icing on the cake was a skull and cross-bone creation made by organiser Adam Attew – edible slices of pirate paradise.
“It’s an alternative Christmas party, that’s not necessarily just for kids but for the whole community,” explained Adam, who teaches baking at the centre.
“Some people come dressed up, and we had visitors from all over Newham. The community helps me out so I wanted to help the community.”
