Looking back to the Summer 2018

Well it's October and it's been getting colder and gloomier lately, but we have to remember the good times we've had this summer with our project groups in the sun. Here's a few images for the memories:

Staff meeting at Lea Rowing Club

Yesterday evening ICiC held a staff meeting at Lea Rowing Club (LRC) We discussed numerous topics on the agenda including; staff training, events, activities, Aspiring Rider Development Project (ARDP) *cross training, delivery ideas at LRC and our travel club in 2019. 
Giuliana Molinari was present and took out meeting minutes and the picture below:

Thanks G!

 
*Cross-training is athletic training in sports other than the athlete's usual sport. The goal is improving overall performance. It takes advantage of the particular effectiveness of one training method to negate the shortcomings of another.

Another typical session at Fawcett

Fawcett bike club is where people come to learn how to fix their bikes. This location has been consistently drawing a mixed group of young people, their friends and family since 2007. Long live Fawcett Youth & Community Bike Club!

A fine time was had by all who came along to our Great Get Together


A fine time was had by all who came along to our Great Get Together event at the Concorde Youth Hub last Friday. It was well attended and everyone was happy with the sounds, refreshments, performances and activities. Well done to all who helped to make this happen. Also Member of Parliament Meg Hiller (Hackney South and Shoreditch) came along to have fun before delivering a short speech about her former colleague MP Jo Cox who was brutally murdered two years ago this week. Meg highlighted what these get together events are for; a celebration of diversity and having a good time with new and old friends.

A special mention must go to sound engineer, all round good guy and team player, Devon (pictured on the left with Keir) who volunteered his time to make sure the set was sounding sweet - Thanks Devon! Also credit must go to Gary Burgess of Hackney Marsh Partnership, the Concorde Youth Hub manager (Joyclen) for taking care or everything including plenty of excellent hot Caribbean.

Concorde social up-date, big things a gwaan!

Well we are under two weeks to go until our date and our 2018 installment of the The Great Get Together, honoring Jo Cox at the Concorde Youth Hub. It's on Friday 22nd June 4-9pm
This is a nation wide series of events with many shows taking place up an down the land, also there are happenings in Ireland, Luxembourg and Netherlands.


Locally our preparations are going well, we have a full complement of ICiC & CCH staff lined up to be on duty during the session along side Concord's regular youth worker team. 
A MiHS sound test will be carried out as part of the Concord's youth group's session on Thursday evening 21st June. And we hope to be able to promote well on the day by setting the rig up outside to go on show (sounding out neatly) for a few hours before the event starts inside at 4pm.   
Caribbean food is on the way, Concord's artists are getting their acts together and the World Cup will be on the in-house big TV screen. The match happens to be the Group D game Nigeria  V  Iceland 16:00 at the Volgograd Arena on BBC TV 

              Hope you can make it, it's going to be a good one, sounds will travel!

The Great Get Together

On Friday 22nd June 2018 Interlinkx CiC are working with Hackney Marsh Partnership and the Concorde Youth Hub to deliver a social event at the Concorde Centre to honor the memory of Jo Cox. 
Look out for news and posters for our other two Great Get Together events to be held at Fawcett Estate Thursday 28th June and Elsdale Hall Saturday 23rd June (London Youth Games after party)


Hackney's had a share of the trouble going on out in the streets lately, the generally divisive atmosphere some try to push and that 'hostile environment' government policy. By coming together (young & old) at The Concorde Youth Hub, we will demonstrate that we much prefer to protect and look after each other. Getting on and having a good time while celebrating our history, culture and diversity it what we are really about in Hackney and on Kingsmead Estate.
