Pat, one of our Community Engagement Officers has been getting in a festive mood... "This year for the first time the Felix Road Adventure Playground teamed up with Up Our Street to organise a Christmas Market on 14 December. An idea to open the playground after dark while providing a welcoming space for residents and an opportunity to buy locally made Christmas gifts were the main inspirations behind the idea. Bags, jewellery, delicious nuts butters, homemade cosmetics, vintage clothes and decorations and cards were amongst the treats on offer.
It was a joy to spend the evening there. An open fire and amazing food cooked by Nirmal from Felix Road contributed to the success of the event, while All Sorts Choir lead by Sarah Moody sang songs and Christmas Carols filling the space with music and joy. Young people who use the playground were also busy selling raffle tickets to fundraise for new equipment.
It was great to see so many of you there. Happy Christmas everyone!"
