Love Lenton December 7th 2017

287 people from our community joined us for this special event, partly to celebrate the opening of the Lenton Green housing complex opposite the church.

It was a very special occasion with all sorts of community groups involved and we were privileged to be the host; we hope everyone who came really enjoyed it and thank to all our partners for their hard work.

From street dancing to entertainment to creative arts to advice stores to  free food to bouncy castles and sports in the tent! it was a great afternoon.

As a Nottingham Age Friendly Supporters we  celebrated Older Peoples Day  at Palmer Court.

We reminisced! We Quizzed! and we ate a lovely tea.

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 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.
