Our Team at LB Islington recently got involved in the Dover Soul Community Event which was a huge success culminating with the BBQ on Sunday 26th July and held on the Dover Court Estate, Islington. The weather was very kind and it was a joy to see all the happy smiling faces of the children and adults who got involved. Clinton Samuels - Senior RLO and our LBI Team hosted around 70 children per day. Clinton said that all the children were well behaved, focused and fully engaged with the various activities available.
On Tuesday 21st July, Breyer Group conducted a workshop highlighting the dangers of Construction sites. During the workshop there was a Q&A session and some of the questions asked by the youngsters showed a great depth of knowledge well beyond their years. Each of the children experienced being an Operative for 45 minutes wearing PPE, all knew the reason for such protective equipment – amazing really as the age range was 4 years up to 9 years old! Our message must be sinking in!!
Many of the children were very keen to meet our Construction Site Mascot ‘Ivor Goodsite’ (Ashley Nembhard - RLO) who was pinched several times by some of the youngsters who were not convinced he was real! Who would think that?!!
