Sports Feast on Sunday 2 July!

Put your train­ers on this Sunday because we have SO MUCH sport­ing activ­ity planned! Which obvi­ously means you can feast just that little bit extra because you will be work­ing it all off…

Sports Day for kids!

There lit­er­ally will be fun and games up at the kids pic­nic and play area! Egg and spoon type races through­out the day and at mid­day Moving Matters and Nutty’s Drama and Sports hol­i­day camp doing activ­it­ies to pro­mote their sum­mer camp!

The Bet­ter team from the leis­ure centre will be doing cir­cuits, box­ing, spin­ning and row­ing — AND they will be offer­ing FREE DAY PASSES as prizes for win­ning chal­lengers!

Feast festival entertainments

Feast’s open mic per­form­ance space for young people has a really spe­cial line up this month. Be sure to catch some tiny weeny baller­inas from Rose Arts, an inspir­a­tion­al talk by 12 year old Inspiring Vanessa and the Royal Society for Blind Children’s Youth Choir per­form­ing at 14.20.

PoetrySlabs are doing read­ings about bicycles in Bon Velo — who are offer­ing a free pastry to any­one who buys a strengthy Vol­cano cof­fee in their shop (get there early, once the cakes are gone, they are gone!)

Local sporting promos!

Those of you who watch our Facebook feed will have seen a pleth­ora of offers from all the local busi­nesses who have any link to sport, health and activ­ity. Here’s just a selec­tion.

The Por­tico Gal­lery are offer­ing a Feast day of free yoga.

These guys great guys from FitFunActive will be at the Fam­ily Well­being hub all day doing ener­get­ic kinds of workout things — please feel free to join in (and join up, they have a 45% DISCOUNT for those who sign up to per­son­al train­ing via this link!)

The Netball Club are offer­ing a 10% dis­count for those who sign up and men­tion Feast…

After all that sport, some of us might need a mas­sage… West Norwood Therapies have a raffle on, look out for the ladies with the bal­loons!

Get walk­ing!

In addi­tion to Feast there are two other events hap­pen­ing this Sunday! We have L’Arche’s Sum­mer Fair at the Goth­ic Lodge gar­dens (just a short walk from the Artis­ans Hub on Chats­worth Way)

And we have anoth­er won­der­ful West Nor­wood Jumbletrail! You’ll have to walk around ALL of West Nor­wood to check out everyone’s yards…and then come back to Feast for some R&R (and food).

At the time of writ­ing, this year’s Jumb­le­trail has 114 par­ti­cipants, if you want to take part you have until mid­night to be included on the posters…

The Hainthorpe Ten­ants and Res­id­ents asso­ci­ation are also hav­ing a tab­letop sale — this will on the path right near the pic­nic and play area so be sure to check it out.

WeNo blog

A couple of Feast volun­teers work togeth­er to bring out a monthly blog fea­tur­ing one of West Norwood’s busi­nesses. This month it’s the children’s cloth­ing and uni­form shop’s turn in the spot­light. Read here all about in An Insider's Guide to...Wear Abouts!

Food Week

Assum­ing you are read­ing this in the week, we still have two Sta­tion to Sta­tion Food Week events left, the com­munity BBQ at the Por­tico Gal­lery on Fri­day even­ing and afternoon tea at Frangipani on Sat­urday.

And finally…

If you really wanted to see Feast Film Night's screening of Dazed and Confused at the Book and Record Bar last month but couldn’t — don’t worry, it was post­poned! It is now on at exactly the right time — the last day of term! This being Fri­day 21 July…
