It's been almost a year since the Robert Jeyes Library was transformed into the Chadwell Heath Community Centre. Over the past 12 months the centre has become a hub for the local community and has held many fantastic events, including a visit this summer by her Royal Highness, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip.

On Saturday 26th September the Chadwell Heath Community Centre will be holding its Autumn Craft Fair showcasing the talents of local residents with a variety of stalls with handmade crafts. There will also be refreshments available, games for the children and fun for the family. The event starts at 10am and will close at 3pm.

Jon Cruddas MP, who is a trustee of the community centre that is now a registered charity said: "The community centre has come on leaps and bounds in the last year, and plays a vital role in the development of Chadwell Heath. Each event I have attended has been a celebration of our cultural diversity in Dagenham and its continual growth is a testament to community spirit in the local area. If you haven't been to an event there yet I urge local residents to go along and get involved."

There are still a few tables left at the event, so if you would like to get involved and have your own stall please contact Dawn or Anne: or stalls cost £10 the event flyer can be found HERE
