Daisy and I would just like to share some pictures from the very successful Easter Family Fun day we held on 16th April 2-4pm! Families enjoyed face painting (provided by Funky Faces), making Easter bonnets and Baskets (provided by mobilecrafts4u), using Brighter Living Partnership’s Smoothie Bike and after all that, running round our Community gardens hunting Easter Eggs! What a fun day!
After a short break, the High Park – Think Family, Think Community project is back!
Community Organiser, Rachel Wheble, has moved on to pastures new and though we’re sad to see her go, we hope to carry on right from the great place she left off.
We are planning some exciting new events over the coming weeks and so please keep an eye on the website, Twitter and Facebook for further details.
In the meantime, we are hoping to speak to as many High Park residents as possible about your visions for the project, and for High Park more broadly and will be running another community consultation in the coming weeks — both online and out and about in the community — so please keep any eye out for that too!
As always, if you have any ideas about positive changes you’d like to see happen in High Park, or you just fancy meeting me, Jennie (the new project organiser), please don’t hesitate to get in touch, I’d love to hear from you!

Well it’s finally arrived! The school summer holidays are here and we have lots going on….
Due to the success of last summers Scavenger Hunt, the children have asked me to do it again this year.
There are 8 items to collect & stick on to the sheet and – new for this year – I am really excited to have a ‘Secret Word Hunt’ for the children to find letters in the shop windows around Bispham Road; rearrange the letters to make the secret words
and complete the sheet – here’s one to get you started….
Huge thanks to all the shops for ‘hosting a letter’ – the support has been fantastic!
Spare copies of the hunt are available in K&M Corner Shop
All completed Scavenger Hunt sheets can be posted in the special ‘hunt box’ located in Bispham Road Post Office Closing date: 5pm Tuesday 23rd August
Please don’t forget to include the child’s name, age, address & postcode because I need to know where to post the prize 🙂
(There are prizes for all completed hunts)
All hunts have been collected and prizes posted – well done everyone!
