The community of Lenton came together on Saturday 28 September for a family funday. There were local charity and craft stalls plus games and a bouncy castle. There was even a Beatfeet Drumming workshop and a Bhangra Dancing Workshop!

This is an annual event that has been running, on and off, for around 30 years and this year was organised by Kate Loewenthal, Chair of Lenton DNRA (Lenton Drives and Neighbours Residents Association). You may recognise Kate’s name as she was one of our recipients of the Active Citizens Awards at our Common Goal Conference held in June. You can read more about Kate here.

Kate said of this year’s event, “It was hard work - especially having to organise it twice having been rained off in June! But it was definitely worth it. There was a fantastic atmosphere, lots of fun and the event brought old and young, students and families together. Also, people of various faiths and those of no faith at all.  Everyone was simply enjoying all that is good about our community 😊👍”
