Bolton Woods street party to lift spirits of residents
9:00am Friday 23rd August 2013 in News
A street party next weekend will help bring the feel-good factor to Bolton Woods.
The Bolton Woods People’s Street Party is on Saturday, August 31, around The New Vic public house on Livingstone Road. The outdoor element of the event will be held between noon and 5.30pm.
There will be a children’s funfair in the middle of Bute Street and Stanley Road and a music stage in the pub’s garden. The Lord Mayor of Bradford, Councillor Khadim Hussain, will welcome guests to the event at noon and Coun Vanda Greenwood, of Wrose and Windhill, will be another guest.
Organisers say the event was organised to lift the community after a murder and stabbing in neighbouring Windhill last month.
Stalls will include Caribbean food, arts, crafts and fashion. There will also be a raffle – the main prize being a signed City football shirt – for the Little Heroes charity. Organisers are still looking for volunteers. For details, call 07971 874942.
