A very successful Celebrating our Firvale event was held at Firvale Community Hub on October 30th with over 200 attending. The event was the result of a collaboration between Firvale Community Hub, Cohesion Sheffield and Hope not Hate. The event came as the result of The Festival of Debate discussion earlier in the year where local residents said that they would like to have more celebratory events.
Over two hundred people attended and enjoyed food prepared by Open Kitchen Social club and Firvale Community Hub volunteers. Much of the funding came from the South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner fund.
The event gave the opportunity for local people to sit and chat with one another. Local children also enjoyed playing interactive games and crafts.
It was brilliant to see the local group Romano de Jilo give their polished performance on home ground. They are now well known in the city for performing at various citywide events.
We look forward to Firvale celebrating more about the area in times to come, building on the good work that Firvale Community Hub has done in holding a monthly litter picks.
