Well, after several months of preparation, the New Revoe Residents Fun Day finally arrived on Saturday and right on flippin’ queue the heavens opened and we had to have most of the stalls, etc, in Ibbison Court!
But that didn’t stop everybody who attended from having a great time. The kids who attended had a scream – they had free face painting, free hot dogs, free ice cream and a free donkey ride (the donkeys resolutely marched on through the torrents).
The Deputy Mayor and Mayoress opening the fun day.
And if you are a tombolaphile (new word – I’m trademarking it) then this was the place for you – with 4 different tombolas on offer as well as loads of other ways to blow all the loose change in your pocket. I am told that the event raised over £600 for the association that we will be reinvested in the local community, so well done all!
The Revoelution Cloir
And of course, there was the brilliant Revoelution Choir there to sing a few songs – they were excellent as ever 🙂
Anyway, it’s only Tuesday but so far this week (after doing full days in work), I have attended a meeting a local church, helped deliver some leaflets and I have been out to see some residents regarding some issues that are affecting them.
On Sunday, I attended Absent – a new art installation in the Winter Gardens. I won’t say too much about it for fear of spoilers but I really enjoyed it – it’s really, really interesting. It’s not what I would call cheap though – but I would recommend it and I think that Blackpool could really do with more stuff that is a bit “out there”. See link here below:
Anyways, come back soon & take care
