Redcliffe Voice Issue 03 Spring

Highlights News from SMRT Residents Help the P.02 taking action P.05 Film Club! P.08 issue 03 | SPRING 2017 Spring into Action Local news for local people After what feels like months and months of rain, Spring has arrived! The clouds are (mostly) few and far between, the daffodils are blooming, Easter and the holiday weekend are coming and a new optimism is in the air. And with this season comes an irresistible urge to try new things – or is that just me? In a moment of high confidence, I decided to sign up for the Bath Half Marathon, to raise funds for Next Link who support women fleeing domestic violence. Drop me a message on FB or Twitter if you want to get details. But I’m not alone in this desire to do more for others – this issue is packed with stories of local people taking action to improve the lives of others. Happy reading and be inspired! Easter Egg Hunt Easter Sunday, 16th April – Find the hidden Easter eggs at St. Mary’s Redcliffe Church. A great afternoon of fun for children and family alike Starts at 1pm at the church for the egg hunt, then onto the hall at Faithspace until 4pm. Come join in the fun! Playing Out sessions are coming to Redcliffe! P laying Out Redcliffe is part of a project to creatively support residents in Redcliffe to activate playing out sessions in their neighbourhoods. Most adults have fond memories of playing out as a child, but for many children now, opportunities to play outdoors have reduced. Local people like you are leading Playing Out sessions for their children to be able to play safely outside, have fun off the sofa and explore their urban environment. We’re particularly keen to hear from parents, carers, grandparents, aunts and uncles but all are welcome in the hope that we can strengthen opportunities for all, from all the Redcliffe communities, to come outside and enjoy the fresh air with their neighbours! These informal free sessions usually involve temporary road closures which are arranged by local residents as a step towards outdoor play being a normal, everyday activity for children everywhere. In Redcliffe, we’re lucky to have a range of suitable green and paved spaces so we’ll be using those and everyone’s welcome to join in. They will be on Ship Lane by Norton and Spencer Houses (between Somerset Square and Redcliffe Children’s Centre) on Tuesday 18th April, 3.15 – 5.30pm then every Tuesday to summer and beyond. Play kit of bubbles, hoops, chalk, rope and more is provided. Spread the word!
