St Hilda’s East on film

On Monday 8th November, staff, volunteers and service users gathered together to watch our film, ‘St Hilda’s East: the Story of a Community’. Made by members of our youth projects and volunteers from Cheltenham Ladies College, the film shows the special role that St Hilda’s has played in local life over the past 120 years.

John Hall, who made the original 1957 film about St Hilda’s East, met with Imran, Abu, Rayhan, Furqan and Imran who were responsible for the camera work on our new film. John travelled all the way from Cornwall for the screening and the boys were very interested to hear about his experiences back in the 1950s.

More than 150 people turned up to watch the film and look through the photos on display from the community archive which we are building here in Club Row. You can read more about the event in the East London Advertiser by clicking here.
