This summer the TWC Team have teamed up with Tottenham Hotspurs Football Club’s Community Development Team to run free multi-sports sessions for young people living in the Watermills Lane Neighbourhood in Enfield.
Omari Chambers-Alert the Community Development Coordinator for the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation said “Working with young people in the community is a core part of the work we do. We aim to help young people lead healthy and fulfilling lives. Multi-sports is an excellent way of doing this.”
Sarah Hoyle from Together We Create said. “The Team from Spurs have been fantastic.The young people really enjoy the multi sports sessions. The buzz around this project is great!”
Together We Create have been delivering sessions at the Watermill Lane for over a year in conjunction with Origin Housing Association . Jade Hughes from Origin said: “Our residents really love getting involved with different projects and events. We love working in partnership with local organisations”
The next multi-sports sessions at Watermill Lane take place on the 18th and 19th August between 11am – 2pm. The sessions are free to all children living locally and are open to both boys and girls aged 7-17.
During the first week in August the team from Together We Create will be back at Watermill Lane in Enfield digging deep for the Watermill Lane Gardening Project.
Across the three days of the project 3rd- 5th August the team will work with local young people to create an amazing garden for the local neighbourhood. Here is the plan :
Wednesday 3rd August 4pm- 6pm
•What plants can be found on the Watermills Lane Estate
•How would you describe them and can you draw them
•What plants would you like to see on the Watermill Lane Estate
Thursday 4th August 4pm- 6pm
Adding to the garden:
•Weeding the current garden
•Adding identification tags to the current plants in the garden
•Planting new flowers
Friday 5th August 4pm- 6pm
Celebrating the garden:
•Creating a sign for the garden and possibly bunting
•Adding home made windmills to the garden to make sure everyone knows that the garden has been created by local children
On Saturday 6th August we will also be running a community fun day for Watermill Lane. The young people will be decorating plant pots and filling them with flowers to give to the neighbours.
All workshops are free of charge and open to Origin Housing residents aged 7- 14 living in the Watermills Lane Neighbourhood.
