Please find below an update on what is planned and programmed for the Community Festival on Sunday 5th August 2012 at Barley Lane Recreation Ground.
Once again, the Community Festival promises to be very exciting. With a vibrant mix of Olympic inspired activities, picnic area, refreshments, stalls and classic family entertainment, Barley Lane Recreation Ground will be the ideal place to celebrate Area 5’s local talent and achievements.
The Programme will include:
The event will be managed on the day by Shakira Greaves - Vision RCL along with support from the Arts Team, Tasleem Hamid - Inspiration Roadshow Co-ordinator and Redbridge Olympics Ambassadors.
Leaflets are being distributed locally today by a company and Councillor Bellwood and Cllr Littlewood have requested some leaflets so they can do some leaflet drops personally and hand some out this weekend.
I met with both Cllr Littlewood and Cllr Bellwood yesterday to discuss the event. I would hope that Members will find the programme interesting but if there is anything which is not listed which has been programmed at previous years events then please let me know and we will see what we can do. This year with many events we have found that entertainers or organisations are busy with other Olympics related activities but I am happy to contact groups which we may have missed.
Also, if anyone would like to help on the day or in the lead up to the event next week, please contact me directly. All offers of help would be greatly appreciated.
