Chalkstone Community Centre will be hosting an event this weekend to celebrate the Chalkstone Estate turning 50.

The Chalkstone Celebration and Open Day will take place on Saturday (June 25) from 11am to 4pm.

A number of activities will be taking place on the green beside the community centre as well as inside, and Tesco, Samuel Ward Academy and many of the centre’s groups will have stalls to browse.

Visitors will be able to watch groups giving dance, karate, majorettes, keep-fit and self-defence displays, while a bouncy castle, face-painting and football should keep the youngsters entertained.

Refreshments will be on sale and there will be the opportunity to look around the centre which has been undergoing refurbishment in preparation for community cafe Chex opening this summer. Tim Warboys, centre manager and event organiser, said: “This provides a fantastic opportunity for old and new residents of the Chalkstone Estate and users of the Chalkstone Community Centre to come together, reminisce and celebrate.”
