Summer playschemes 1980 and 2012

Since the early days of Chats Palace, annual summer playschemes were popular with the local community (run in conjunction with the Homerton Grove Adventure Playground). Over 30 years later, Lauren Mills, a Homerton born and bred choreographer and founder of BYB arts organisation, coordinates a team of volunteers to run an affordable playscheme at Chats Palace throughout the summer holidays.
