Our volunteers Susan and Fran kicked off a series of events around Bournemouth Close on Sunday. They were asking local residents and passers by what they think would liven up the rather sad space between Rye Lane and Atwell estate.
It was a beautiful winters day and with the help of some delicious brownies the ideas were flowing.
It’s rather a big leap for the imagination to think of Bournemouth Close as a community iddyll so the plan is to change people’s perceptions of the space by doing all sorts of unusual actviites. We hope that lots of people will get involved and realise the potential of this huge resource.
On Friday Pop Up Parks are going to be bringing their apparatus to Atwell Road for children under 5 to have a play during their half term break. Come along and check out the Moss Pit or help your little one have a go on stilts, there’ll be lots of fun things laid out to get those imaginations going.
See you there!
