Our local CPO’s and parents doing the egg and spoon race – great fun!

Our day was dedicated to Jo Cox and cards and roses were given out in her memory, we wanted the event to celebrate what we have in common as a community and I think we did that!

We partnered with our Nottingham City Council and Nottingham University who funded the event, as well as Holy Trinity, The Lenton Centre and Dunkirk and Lenton Community Centre and organisations including LDNRA http://www.lentondnra.co.uk came on the day to make it a memorable event. We provided a BBQ, ‘Robins Racers’ and Disney Dancing! Loads of other community groups joined in the fun and so many people came together it was amazing. We were joined by Councillor Dave Trimble and Councillor Sarah Piper. And Our newly elected MP Lillian Greenwood.
