Pat has been working with Sarah from Avon Wildlife Trust and with Jenny from Easton Community Children’s’ Centre to bring some fun to the blocks.
On Thursday morning we spent a fantastic couple of hours at Rawnsley Park. The Block Party in the Park got parents and children mingling and playing together. Aside from skipping, chalking, painting, singing, running, decorating (and eating) delicious waffles with fruits, we had a chance to chat about urban nature and animals living in our city. Parents were curious to know why there are so few birds in the Rawnsley Park and what can be done about it. Could making seed bombs and decorating bird feeders be a good start to change that? We certainly tried.
Our gathering was also an opportunity to clear the park from litter and bring residents up to speed on our new campaign 'Show Stapleton Road Some Love'.
Block Party proved to be a great opportunity to meet old friends and to make new ones so if you would like to organise one outside your block, do get in touch and email firstname.lastname@example.org
Next Block Party outside Kingsmarsh and Baynton House, Wednesday 29th August 11-1 pm. I hope to see you there.
