Wow what a Great Big Picnic Celebration 2017!

in Hanley Park on Sunday 11th June 2017
the One Big Celebration Picnic happened!picnic posterPeople brought picnics
and joined their neighbours for free activities for all ages
on the theme of books!

“This was a really good example of different organisations and community groups working together in the University Quarter and wouldn’t have happened without the strong working relationships that have been formed between them. The event brought a very safe multicultural celebratory feel to the park bringing all ages together”.

We had music, games, delicious food,
family learning and crafts activities,
stories, walks, henna hand painting, gardening and more!
Karvan joined us with the wonderful Lit Trip Advisor
We wrote recipes using ingredients from the new edible green route.

Volunteers read The Very Hungry Caterpillar in 4 languages –
English, Romanian, German and Welsh!
The video is coming soon!

Over 40 volunteers, 40 artists and staff were involved from more than 12 organisations.

Many thanks to YMCA North Staffs for applying for funding and organising the event.

Thanks to the Lottery Community Celebration Fund!
