Pans at the ready

Staff at KWMC celebrated Shrove Tuesday in style - by cooking up a pile of pancakes with a range of different fillings - from the traditional lemon and sugar to fruit, chocolate with peanut butter and maple syrup. Using two camping stoves and wary of setting off the fire alarms, staff had flipping competitions and ate their way through over 20 crepes. Sue and Jen who organised the event agreed it was "brilliant for staff wellbeing and team building."

Filwood Glow

Residents brought bikes and scooters to Filwood Broadway to decorate them with lights and reflectors for the Filwood Glow Parade this evening. The whole Broadway was closed to traffic to allow cyclists the freedom of the road. From toddlers to octogenarians - visitors enjoyed racing round the circuit, refreshments and activities. Despite plummeting temperatures there was a good turnout - with people suitably wrapped up for the occasion. The event was organised by Community Public Health to bring local people together and help to promote cycling and walking.
