Regular readers of Strong Island will be aware of Community Fusion and the great work they do for the young people of Portsmouth, getting them involved in making a positive change to their communities.
Today they will be hosting a special day of 4th birthday celebrations, beginning with a Made With Hartt Market from 11am. If you are into craft and all things creative then get your yourself down there. The award winning project providing an opportunity for volunteers to develop and gain new skills through volunteering and a chance for the community to sell their handmade goodies, arts, crafts and designs. The unique market will be held in the Wedgewood Rooms providing live music too.
The second part of the celebrations ‘Party with JOUIS and friends’ features live music in The Loft above the Kings Pub on Albert Rd and is sponsored by Quay West Studios. This will be a mere £2 entry on the door and is great value for this line up.
