Friends, Family & Fireworks
9 November 2011
On Monday we held our Annual Urban Hope Bonfire Night at the Almorah Road Community Centre, and it was a great evening.
Around 80 people of all ages from the local community came together to eat hot dogs and cake around the fire, watch a small fireworks display and light sparklers.
Evenings like this are so special to the life of Urban Hope because it’s at times like this when our best cross-cultural, inter-generational work is done.
Whole families from across the community meet together and share their stories and experiences, serve each other and celebrate being together. They can come and meet in a way which is far more natural and much less clunky or forced, then the way it can be in fabricated sessions of young people mixing with older.
