Community Summer Festival
The Festival had a fantastic 1,400+ attendees, a mix of residents and friends of Farley. The Festival was opened by the High Sheriff of Bedfordshire, Meryl Dolling and Luton Mayor, Tahir Malik, who both had a really good time. We also had 12 Partnership members present on the day & actively helping with the running of the event.
The event was about giving back to the community by bringing the Community together, showcase community chest groups and to feed our legacy away day/ delivery plan.
The festival took place at the Farley Hill Community Centre, 99 Delphine Close, LU1 5RE.
The event took place on Saturday 6th July 12-3pm, followed by a 10 minute AGM and Raffle prizes after.
The festival gave residents a chance to see what is happening locally, sign up with local classes groups, receive free information, raise awareness of Farley Big Local, meet members of the Partnership, it gave community groups the chance to show case their talents, FBL brought residents together by asking local groups to take part at the event, the event also captured feedback on what they want to see happen locally as legacy projects or wishes for long term changes and just simply give back to the local residents.
Will there be another Community Festival in 2020?
