In June, at the end of the first year of Quality Street, over 300 participants, fellow pupils, friends, family and neighbours came for ‘Meet the Street’ – a joyful celebration involving processions, percussion, kites, costumes, bunting and the unveiling of a new mural on the wall of the playground.

The event brought together intergenerational groups from George Mitchell Primary, Leyton Orient Walking Football Club, Glebelands and Albany Court, extra care shemes, to show everyone the fruits of their work and get everyone involved. There was also an extraordinary amount of cake – thanks to the generosity of parents, friends and teachers from the school.

This film by Chuck Blue Lowry gives a glimpse into this wonderful event:

A different kind of family
The irresistible draw of joining in
Centenarian creativity
A view from friends and carers
Projects are for parents too
