The Coronation celebration
The children prepared all week making party decorations. They made and decorated
their own Crowns, and we even made our tea cakes. With all the fun filled activities the
children were finally ready for their tea party and the King's Coronation. The children
came in all dressed up and and ready to party, ‘What a fun day we had’.
THE PET SHOP
The Community Nursery had a fun visit to the local pet shop.
The children stroked the Hamsters and the Guinea Pigs, while they learned how to be
gentle and kind to the animals so they can stay calm and relaxed. Although the children
were full of chatter and excitement they did an amazing job!
Once everyone was back at the nursery, the home corner was turned into their very
own pet shop, and with a vet surgery too. All the children enjoyed joining in all the fun
activities around this project.

The Mayor of Camden Nash Ali attended Maiden Lane’s Eid Celebration held to promote community health and to bring local people together with food and fun activities for all the family to enjoy.
The Camden/NHS Health Bus was also present to support family members and individuals who might have missed their long-term care and support during the pandemic such as people with diabetes, high blood pressure and heart related conditions.
Over 200 residents attend, and the event was a great success.
MLCC has teamed up with a new partner, York Way Sainsbury’s along with Camden town Sainsbury’s and Morrisons. We have reconnected with The London Irish Centre following the pandemic which is great. We are also working closely with Torriano school, our food bank has gone in their newsletter, and we are working with the school to help support the most in need.
Young people are volunteering on Friday evenings in the foodbank, putting food away, packing and recycling (image on the right). It is helping them to learn new skills and gain valuable experience.
Increasing referrals are coming in from family support workers. We are working with around 15-20 families a week, feeding around 40-60 people a week. This number is set to increase to above pandemic numbers as the winter sets in, along with cost-of-living crises, inflation etc.
