  • New Revoe Residents Association Annual Fun Day 2019

    This years annual Fun Day was even bigger and better than the previous years! The New Revoe Residents Association work exceptionally hard alongside the local councillors and the Revoe-lution Choir to bring together a fantastic family fun day with each child receiving a book of vouchers which allows them to use all the activities and get a free hot dog and ice cream! There was entertainment all day with the choir master Emma keeping everyone laughing and dancing. We were so proud to be part of and support such a successful and valuable event in our area! Looking forward to next year!
  • Community Celebration 2019

    This year, instead of holding an Annual General Meeting or Annual Review Meeting we decided to hold a Community Celebration, where members of the community, partnership and established groups could come together and see what we have been up to and share their experiences and ideas. It was held at a local working men’s club where we had ice breaker activities, mood boards to share our story, some reflection on areas of main concern and then it was time to enjoy a buffet and a raffle and some music as a community!
  • Plan Review Away Day

    With the deadline creeping ever closer we arranged an ‘away day’ at a local hotel complex where partnership members, staff, our LTO and Rep all came together to reflect on what we have achieved over the past 18 months with Plan B and start to unpick where we will be going with our last plan up until 2026. It was an intense but fun day, with a great deal to discuss and think about. We are planning to have another away session in a few months once we have undertaken further consultation.
  • We Love To Dance Come Join Us Event

    The original event was postponed due to poor weather and lack of venue, but the replacement event may have also been on the receiving end of awful weather, this time we had Ibbison Court ready to put to good use. The rain may of meant we didn’t get as many passing participants BUT it meant that those who came, stayed! We had a great mix of ages and families come along with young people giving dance demos from a local dance company called Skool of Street, we had a vast range of music as well as circus skills workshops and even a game of limbo! It had a real sense of coming together and provided a safe and relaxed space for the people of Revoe to enjoy.
