Family May Day in Cannon Hill Park

06/05/2010

Thanks to all those who attended our event with the Friends of Cannon Hill Park on Sunday celebrating Peace, Sense and Sustainability. Sadly as you are aware, the weather is beyond our control. It threatened to put a dampner on things, but we battled through and the day turned into an overall success!

Organisations involved included Northfield Eco-centre, the Birmingham & District Allotment council, Jubilee Debt Campaign, Young people’s Arts Hub, Celebrating Sanctuary and OPAL.

One particularly successful aspect was Faith and Climate Change’s wall of peace. People were asked to ‘leaf a thought’ on peace and peace in the park. These leaves were then attached to a wall where people could wander through and have a read at their leisure. These leaves have since been collated and made into a display for the reception of the Birmingham Friends of the Earth office on Allison Street. If anyone would like to add to it, there is still space to do so, so feel free to pop in and ‘leaf a thought’.

Some of the children had a great time playing Bfoe’s food chain snakes and ladders game. They had fun whilst learning interesting facts and information. The kids (young and old) also enjoyed planting seeds at Birmingham and Midland’s Allotment council’s stall. They could then take these home to watch them grow. Children also painted pebbles for the Borders garden. Celebrating Sanctuary’s map of the world was also a hit. People were asked to show from where in the world they had come from. A large range of nationalities were represented and on show.

Here are some more pictures from a fun day out….
