There have been some gorgeous blooms
in gardens and pathways in
our postcode area this April.
Artist Phiona Richards paid another
Threads and Chatter visit to KBA
creating books from recycled papers
and demonstrating how to make an origami butterfly
you can see a slightly longer clip here
and more photos here
Carole Miles joined the gang at The Resource Centre
for some knitting and nattering - rumour has it Carole
was cutting out fabric to up-cycle at The Green Patch
Open day whilst there
she managed to snap a rare red lurex hedgehog.
Meanwhile down at The Green Patch
baking was taking place
the children made Rhubarb crumble - yum!
They have also been adding to
their View From Here books.
We can't believe just how fast the year is rushing past.
For more of the flavour of April out in our postcode area

We are always looking for ways to add elements to our projects and our Project Coordinator Carole Miles applied to become an World Book Night 2015 institutional volunteer and we gave out books in our project postcode area in the Avondale Grange Ward as part of our The View From Here project. We also gave books in other parts on other days to members of Back To Books.
We gave out
Book Title: Spring Tide
All the books were wrapped in our specially created book
and the books given out in out postcode area also
contained a leaflet about the project.
We had a fabulous week of book giving as you can
see from all the smiling faces in our Flickr set here!
Rob Walker gave out books at KBA
and we gave out books at The Green Patch
and at the Resource Centre in Grange Square.
World Book Night is an annual celebration of reading and books that took place on 23 April. It sees passionate volunteers give out hundreds of thousands of books in their communities to share their love of reading with people who don’t read regularly or own books. World Book Night is run by The Reading Agency, a national charity that inspires people to become confident and enthusiastic readers to help give them an equal chance in life.
