Pilgrimage Painting goes on show in Romford

Autism & Disabilities Club

The beautiful pilgrimage painting drawn by young people with autism from the RIEES Autism Club goes on show in Romford. It is currently at the Romford Baptist Church in Main Road and can be viewed by the general public. The pilgrimage painting will then move to the Queen’s Theatre in Hornchurch from 8th – 19th April. The young people with autism were supported by FBA Sixth Formers who are Autism Ambassadors in the London Borough of Havering.

 

The FBA Autism & Disabilities Club organized the first ever Autism Sunday Art Exhibition at the Havering Autism Sunday Service at St. Alban’s Church, Romford, in February. The centre piece of the exhibition was the beautiful pilgrimage painting – the message behind the painting is that every single child and adult with autism is special, their lives have worth and value and we celebrate them individually.

Frances Bardsley International Club - Her Majesty the Queen sends a message to FBA Students

 

Her Majesty the Queen sent the student members of the Frances Bardsley International Club a special message to mark the school flying the Commonwealth Flag on Commonwealth Day on Monday 9th March 2015. The Frances Bardsley Academy for Girls was the only School in the London Borough of Havering to do so.

 

More than 730 Commonwealth Flags were raised in locations throughout the United Kingdom, Channel Islands, Isle of Man, UK Overseas Territories, and Commonwealth countries and on Monday 9 March – Commonwealth Day 2015.

 

Bruno Peek LVO OBE OPR - Pageantmaster, 'Fly a Flag for the Commonwealth’, said: "I am amazed how quickly this event has caught the public imagination in so many Commonwealth countries. We are only in our second year, and the involvement of so many people of all ages and from all walks of life shows the enormous potential of this project and of the Commonwealth. It is a positive and uplifting way for people to link with fellow citizens of the Commonwealth in a family that spans across oceans and continents. There is a real sense of promise, and hope for the future.  I am especially delighted that Doodle, a new, and up and coming UK company has joined this project as our sponsor of the Flag Pole and Commonwealth Flag being located outside the Great West Door of Westminster Abbey, London, that will raised just before the start of the Commonwealth Observance there that day."

 

His Excellency Kamalesh Sharma, Secretary-General of the Commonwealth said: “Fly a Flag for the Commonwealth is a most imaginative way for people in local communities – wherever they live, learn or work – to join together with others throughout the Commonwealth in a spirit of respect and understanding to celebrate the variety and unmatched diversity of our global family. I welcome and commend it.”  “All our citizens, particularly the young, can express appreciation for the Commonwealth and the values for which it stands as set out in the Commonwealth Charter, and the rich opportunities it offers for mutual support towards more inclusive social and more equitable economic progress.”
