Arches Local 9th July @ Luton Millennium Green Big Open Fun Day #community

What a great day we all had on Saturday 9th July the community came together and for the price of answering some simple questions got to eat and take part in all the Arches Local activities and more.

We started to get ready early in the day to be honest we were a little nervous thinking would anyone would turn up with so much else going on at the weekend with the Kent Show and River Festival !

Fears soon melted away it got busy really quick and the community enjoyed each other company the entire day,  the children played, the weather was great, the whole day had such a relaxed feel to it. We estimate from the number of tickets we gave out for the hog roast that we had well over 200 people attend over the day, we managed together to totally devour a 68 kilo pig in under 4 hours all that was left was a few mushroom burgers.

Luton Millennium Green #Pocketpark Offical opening

We had the official opening of Luton Millennium Green #pocketpark on 30th March by Tracy Crouch one of our Local MP’s and Sports Minister !

The weather was very kind to us, the children from Luton Junior School who had help with planting of trees previously were also in attendance with members of the community and those who had help shape and work on the #pocketpark most notably the Magpie Growers..

Work will be ongoing at the site with installation of Natural Play and other community inspired ideas with plans for a big party to celebrate with the community in the summer (date to be confirmed). We also hope to be doing a lot more with green spaces locally delivering the needs of the community reflected in our 1st year plan
