Sharing the community love in Shirley park today, with Sandra from Asda Shirley and Denise from Asda Minworth. Making beautifully coloured masked with children, taking part with the races and handing out fruit.
Thankfully I was spared the gunge tank on our last day. Unlike Alex and Anna poor things. huge cheers went up and it was a great end to a fantastic week. I would like to thank eveyone for making me feel very welcome and I've had a super week of fun and lots of laughter.
Here the children are painting and decorating small memory boxes. These will hold the verses and prayers they have learned throughout the coming week. Every one was very careful, and they all turned out beautifully.
This week our Community Life Champion, Tracey, is helping at Yardley Baptist Church Holiday club. Here is Reverend Pete telling everyone about the fantastic Mega Machine. It makes small things bigger. We put a spoon in and out came a spade.
During Ramadha we welcomed the Ummah Welfare Trust into store. Pictured here alongside Mohammed Yaqub is England cricket star Moeen Ali - together they helped raise an amazing £42,985.24!
On Sunday in Small Heath Park, Friends of Small Heath Park held 1,000 mile challenge. This challenged the users of the park to walk, cycle or run one mile circuits of the pathway. On completing ten laps and having the correct amount of stamps, the participants received free entry and five free rides to the fairground. This was very popular.
During the summer holidays Lion Learners are visiting libraries in the Birmingham area, bringing along various animals for the children to look at and touch. I went along to Small Heath library this week to help out with the event. The children loved touching ASHLEY the blue tongued skint and even held Jasmine the tarantula. Claire and Miriam were there with lots of information about the animals that came along.
