April Blooms - Out and About on the Grange

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 

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.

World Book Night

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

Assassin's Apprentice

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 

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.
