Anglia Television news report from Aklowa village in Takeley, Essex, which aims to promote a greater awareness of the richness of African culture.

Anglia Television visit a typical Ghanaian village, a village that is not on the African continent, but in fact, in the East of England. Ghanaian-born Felix Cobson is a true inspiration. He set up the village, a venue for creating a greater awareness of the African way of life, in the grounds of the old vicarage in the Essex village of Takeley. Schoolchildren from Stewards Comprehensive, Harlow spend a day drumming, dancing, and hair braiding, enjoying the richness of African culture.
