haven’t seen them yet the Christmas lights along Evesham Road have now been
switched on and are making the area look very festive. They will be on every
night right throughout the seasonal festivities. Why not take a stroll around
the Bank and enjoy them?
particular to the Christmas lights team who are part of the Astwood Bank
Community Group for making this happen, but none of this is possible without
the community’s support. If you want to get involved in organising next year’s
Christmas lights display (hopefully bigger and better again) just email firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks to both the hard work of the
Astwood Bank Community Group, but mainly because of the great support from both
residents and local businesses over £6,000 was awarded to local groups and
voluntary organisations at the 2019 Open Awards Evening recently held at
Ridgeway Academy. A full list of who was awarded what is below:
Astwood Bank in Bloom have got some exciting plans for 2020 with a number of key projects being developed for the whole community to get involved with. Working in partnership with the Council we are examining opportunities in both Astwood bank Park and Overdale park. More information will be made available at the Open Awards evening on 28th November at Ridgeway Academy, starting at 20:00. This will be a great opportunity to feed into those plans and perhaps even identify how you might want to get involved.
ARE YOU ONE OF THE LUCKY ONES? – Astwood Bank Community Group are proud to announce that it is in a position to award over £6,000 to local groups and voluntary organisations that are active in our community.

Come Join Us at Ridgeway Academy on the 28th November at 20:00hrs (8pm)
Come and help the Astwood Bank Community Group celebrate another fantastic year of fundraising and fun.
The annual awards open meeting is exactly that, an evening open to all residents, visitors, community groups, supporters and potential supporters. It is a night where we can see that all the events put on over the year were not just for fun and community spirit, and were well worth the hard work, as we give out money to local groups and charities.
Groups and charities were invited to submit funding requests
to the committee in advance, those applications have been reviewed and funding
is awarded at the Awards Evening.
At the event we hear a little from those groups and
charities about how the money will be spent and what it will actually mean to
the members and users of those groups.
It is a lovely, heart-warming evening that affirms why we
all work so hard to put on events throughout the year.
This year especially, we would like to encourage people to
come along, especially if you have never attended before, to find out more
about how the funds raised help and support the community. You can speak to the
committee members informally and perhaps find out how you may be able to
support an event in the future.
The evening is a wonderful celebration of
community spirit that will warm your heart and put a smile on your face!
Equipment: Dibbers will be supplied (Guinness had to approve the equipment and it took a few attempts to get them to agree!) but participants may want to bring a kneeling pad as the planting is at ground level
Team Size: We require a team of 100 people (maximum) and are looking for 125 to ensure capacity if there are drop-outs on the day; there will be plenty for all 125 to do if we happen to have. Ideally, I’d like to know who’s interested by mid-September as final participation registrations need to be completed by 29th September.
