Mayor of Redbridge gets messy at Gants Hill church

The Mayor of Redbridge got messy at a special family activity session on Saturday, by helping youngsters to make a collage.

Cllr Muhammed Javed was at Ashurst Drive Baptist Church, Ashurst Drive, Gants Hill on Saturday for their monthly Messy Club, which encourages families to get creative together.

Visitors got stuck into cake decorating and calendar making whilst also having a sing along later in the afternoon.

Senor minister at the church, Richard Owen, said: “We wanted to offer a safe place for families to get involved in arts and crafts, and having a good time, without having to worry about getting mess anywhere.

“So far the feedback has been very good.”
