Hainault Creative Writers’ Group will launch their seventh anthology on Thursday with mayor of Redbridge Cllr Felicity Banks and several other councillors in attendance.

The event celebrates the launch of the book entitled Kaleidoscope which contains short stories and poems written by members of the group.

The Hainault Writers’ Group was formed in 1986 and encourages people to record their life stories and experiences.

Maureen O’Sullivan, who helps to organise the group, said: “Ordinary people often have extraordinary stories to tell of the things they have experienced in their own lifetimes. If they don’t write them down the stories are lost forever and we are all the poorer!”

The event takes place on Thursday April 24 at Hainault Library, Manford Way, from 6pm - 8pm with copies of the book available to buy.

For more information or if you are interested in joining the group call chairman Arthur Salton on 0208 501 0258
