Throughout the weekend you can attend bingo sessions at Mecca Bingo in The Mercury Shopping Centre.

Choose between playing the classic paper game or opt to play the "Mecca max" way, which uses touch-screen devices instead of paper.

There is an on-site bar and café along with electronic gaming machines.  

Take part in a composting workshop  

Join Thames Chase’s Havering waste and recycling team for its composting workshop on July 3 from 10am until 12pm at the Forest Centre in Upminster.

During the “relaxed” and “informal” workshop you will learn about compost systems, wormeries and much more.

Walk with Havering's Essex Wildlife Trust group

On July 3, a group will be meeting at Westley Heights country park at 10.30am to go for a two-hour walk, which will include walking through ancient woodland, flower-rich grassland meadows and the opportunity to spot the birds and butterflies native to the area.

To take part, email grandadtone@gmail.com or call 07413 649006. 

Watch the Euros  

At Atik nightclub in Romford, the Euro 2020 England vs Ukraine quarter final game will be shown on what it says is “Romford’s biggest screen”.

Doors open at 6pm and should you stay until later that evening, at 10.30pm you can pay £30 to attend its “pub in a club” where you can drink indoors with music and a closing time of 3am.
