Community Celebration Day - A Big Thank You

(July 14, 2017)

Quinborne would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who attend our Community Celebration Day.

 The day was a great success which was helped by the fantastic weather and brilliant atmosphere that was generated by everyone who attended.

 The event was officially opened by the current Lord Mayor, Councillor Anne Underwood however the Lord Mayor wasn’t the only dignitary we had onsite during the day, we also had visits from Preet Gill M.P, Councillor John Clancy, Councillor Kate Booth and Councillor Matthew Gregson. We would like to thank them all for their support.

 Also, on-site during the day was Mo Safer from Animals In Hands who brought a great collection reptiles and owls with him, On The Edge who supplied live music and Gail from Squiggles who created some fantastic balloon sculptures, she even managed to paint some faces and Josephina Taylor who provided the fantastic sweeties.

We were also very well supported by local companies and groups, all of all gave up their time for free to come along and support us on the day.

 These included, Fleur, Coventry Building Society, Health Watch Birmingham, St Faith & St Lawrence Church, Una Smith’s Art Group, Raven Bridge Club, Dom at the Gritty Theatre, Recorded Music, Kevin Ryan’s Art Class, Emma from Adult Education and Harborne Gym.

 We were also very fortunate to have Made In Birmingham TV on-site who did a fantastic piece on Quinborne for their Lowdown programme and we must thank @GeorgeHancorn and his cameraman for the way they made Quinborne look. You can watch the full report here.

 A final big thank you must go out to all the Directors and Staff that helped on the day and leading up to the event. Events like this do not come together over night and without their help it wouldn’t have happened. I am not going to name check them all here but you all know who you :-)
