Playing Out Reports

Festive Season: ✓

Well Christmas has been and gone and I think we’ve said happy new year to just about everyone, anyone missed, Happy New Year!

ActiveStreets had a busy one heading into the festive season, with filming for a documentary and several road closures on the books.

Blenheim Road went full steam ahead with their festivities, despite the weather and pulled out all the stops with a guitar accompaniment to the carols and a visit from Santa for the kids.

Sadly some street events were called off due to the forecast, but re-arrangements are in process for the new year.

The documentary we took part in, Fighting For Air BBC2, was a great opportunity for ActiveStreets and we enjoyed seeing Kings Heath, the area or residence for some of our team, on the telly. The ethos to the programme holds true to our aims, working towards healthier, happier lives for the residents of Birmingham. Especially with the children in our city, if we can reduce the pollution and toxins our cities children are inhaling, then we’re on the right track for all our citizens.
