On the 18th of July, Big Local SW11 organised a fantastic event for the Local community at the York Gardens Library. The event was well attended and there were something for everyone !We were delighted to show the local residents the result of our quick wins and how it had benefited the area and get more great ideas how to improve it even more.
We were blessed by a lovely weather and the athmosphere was fantastic. The children enjoyed immensely the bouncy castle, facepainting, candyfloss and popcorn while the adults got health advice, discussed their ideas with the big local volunteers or attended some good focused discussion,. One of those discussions was about people with disabilities and how Big Local could contribute to improve the lives of our disable residents as well. The smoothie bike was back and was a hit as always, promoting fresh fruits and excercise. The music was great with local school band, rappers and DJ from 4 till 8 pm. Some pictures will be posted soon. Battersea can be a great place.
