What a wonderful day!
Green City Action yet again put on an amazing event, Abbeyfield Park Multicultural Festival, bringing together everything that is good about Burngreave. "Even better than last year" some have said and it's hard to disagree. More people, more stalls, more fun.
Around 6500 people soaked up the relaxed, happy atmosphere and with 85 different stalls there was lots to do and see. Walking round the park was like walking round the world, with people from the many different cultures of Burngreave putting on stalls with food, activities and information.
This event is the biggest thing in Burngreave's calendar. As a yearly celebration of our diverse mulitcultural community it is important that such an event should be funded effectively into the future.
Many thanks are due to Panni Loh and the Green City Action team, the volunteers from BTCV who returned the park to perfection by litter picking, and the very professional security people who helped the day run smoothly.
