  • Art Explorers

    Art Explorers kicked off Plan B's first round of Community Chest. We found we had a real artistic response which caused us to start an Arts Group for Revoelution which involved lots of local artists and residents, which we are looking to grow. Art Explorers was a great start to the program, working with Sam Simpson looking at local artists for inspiration as well as movement and dance!
  • 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!
  • Prince's Trust Revoe Street Project

    We worked with Prince's trust to brighten up the alley way that leads to the primary school. They did basic litter removal as well as design bold wall paintings and use welcoming phrases in the varying languages spoken by the children who attend. The young people worked hard and the end result was brilliant. We celebrated with a little party after it was all finished and then later supported the team by attending their graduation from the program.
  • 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!
