What a wonderful weekend! Full of energy, positivity and community spirit! The main hall at our Durning Hall site was filled with music, laughter, signing, dancing and all the other trappings that come when a friendly group of people get together to enjoy each others company.
A day of food, drink, activities and performances including a wonderful theatre piece from our friends at Think Big Theatre, The Forest gate voices stunned us with songs from around the globe and Olu’s Kick boxing group gave us a kick ass demonstration of what it is that they do!
We had facepainting, coconut shy’s, ring making with the team from Number 8 emporium, food from india, cakes from Forest gate, a bouncy castle and lots and lots of FUN!
It was a real joint effort and it was great to see lots of local groups supporting each other, creating a wonderful atmosphere and inviting people in to join in. We had faces new and old sharing ideas, jokes and tea and coffee!
We are pleased to say that we also managed to collect around £500.00 to go towards decorating the main hall, so it really was a winning day!
We love inviting the community in and sharing moments like this, bringing together old and young and everybody from the community. Watch this space for more events and joined up thinking from Aston-Mansfield!
