Today AACV had a great time today at Castle Vale Carnival.
It was about taking the event back to basics with all the activities focussed on people having fun and with most things free or at low cost. AACV created an Arts Zone funded by both ourselves and the Events Committee.
Benny Semp’s workshop making Dream Catchers was busy from start to finish, attracting people of all ages, mostly children who then drew in their mums and dads. Later on other adults enjoyed the quiet moment in making something to take home.
Also very popular was the drumming workshop with Glamba Samba. Children and the young at heart had a go at beating the range of drums with the words ‘Chips and Ice-Cream’ taking on whole knew meaning. They often drew a crowd who watched the fun.
Gary Jones from Off Our Trolley was busy all day making up floats for the procession that closed the event. The fabulous creatures were made with young people from the Sanctuary during the week and those who stopped by on the day.
The procession around the park with Trolly’s and Samba Band made a great ending and has inspired the organisers and many of the local groups for next year.
Well done to everyone and thank you to all those who took part.
