TIMELINE

  • Winter Festival

    We finally held our Winter Festival at the end of January due to a last minute cancellation with the venue in November, when it was originally expected! We ran lantern workshops with the school, RLA, and local craft group running up to the festival, where the young people designed, made and decorated their own lanterns, with the help of Mel from Electric Sunshine Project. We had a parade on the evening, with music from Samba band Poco Loco, and it was amazing watching folks come out from their homes to watch as we went by! The festival itself was non-stop with music, dance, crafts, face painting and festival looks, food and cake! We really saw the community come together for this, and look forward to making it an annual event!
  • Two Fun Days in One Week!

    Not only did we have a fun day with His Provision on the 16th of Aug, we then helped at the New Revoe Residents Association fun day on the 19th! It was a week for sunshine, gazebos, face painting, bag printing, scout demos, dance and music, donkey rides, popcorn and ice cream and most importantly it was a week full of families enjoying themselves together!

  • Community Clean Up and Anti Fly-Tipping Campaign
    June 10, 2017      Photo
    Working with Groundworks and the newly appointed Community Development Worker, Revoelution set about completing an alley way clean up with local residents alongside an anti fly- poster competition with the young people of the area. The day of the actual clean up was an absolute wash out with torrential rain yet we still had one very dedicated volunteer come and support us and we got the job done! The poster campaign was run alongside locally run community youth groups as well as the local primary Revoe Learning Academy. We then joined in with Better Start for a community day to get the posters judged by local councillors. We then went back to schools and groups to hand out certificates to the winning posters!
