Who is Bearwood Action for Refugees?

14349137_10157532452185061_804562568_n

Bearwood Action for Refugees was started by a small group of local Bearwood Residents who were dismayed by the plight of Syrian Refugees. Over the past 12 months, they have done a number of events to raise funds for Leros Solidarity Network who support refugees on this Greek island. On the 1st of October, they are planning a Procession of Light through Warley Woods (see flyer below). This Saturday, you can learn more about the work Bearwood Action for Refugees are doing and buy a tote bag to support their work.

You can also make a lantern at the Lantern Workshop that is happening tomorrow (12pm and 2pm) for the procession of light. The workshop is in a room in the church beyond the kitchen, but it will be signposted. The group is asking for a suggested donation for the lanterns.

What can you expect?

How brave is the Wren – 3rd Crafty Pantry Food Festival in Bearwood

Who is How brave is the Wren?

how-brave-is-the-wren

Books provide a special kind of nourishment, we need them for our souls. Being taught the pleasure of reading at an early age, ideally while curled up on a parent’s or carer’s lap, is one of the lifeskills that is sadly so underrated but let me tell you: If you like to read you are never without a wonderful thing to do. How Brave is the Wren is a travelling bookshop that comes to events all over England and she stocks books for children by authors that are inspiring and engaging. The bookshop is housed in a magical little caravan and your little ones are surely going to remember that bookshop for a while. But also if you find yourself without young children, it’s still worth a look for presents for upcoming events (ok, I mean Christmas).

The Windsor – 3rd Crafty Pantry Food Festival in Bearwood

Posted by on Sep 15, 2016 in Crafty Pantry Food Festival Bearwood 2016 | 3 comments

What’s the Windsor?the-windsor

The Windsor belongs in Bearwood like Warley Woods. Over the years, it has changed from cinema, to ice rink, to theatre to snooker hall. Over the past 18 months, the team up at the Windsor have worked tirelessly to restore the venue and the Theatre Bar and the Green Room at the Windsor is proof what can happen when you apply passion, determination and a belief that this venue could be something outstanding. Paul and his crew have introduced live music, tapas, a good selection of beverages and much more. You can also hire space for your own parties, which is always worth remembering.

This Saturday the Windsor team will be serving outside Chorizo Burgers, Sweet Chicken and paella. From 2.30 they have a charity all day music event – entry is £2.50 for a whole afternoon and evening of music. Acts such as Tom Greenhalgh,Charlotte Young , Colin Hall, John Langford, Chris Hewitt , Jamie McCluskey & Unchanged, it promises to be a really good evening, so you can just party on all night. And even better: No need for a taxi as you can just walk home. It’s important to support venues like the Windsor, especially when we constantly hear about venues closing. Let’s keep this one, folks.

 

What can you expect?

the-windsor2

  • Delicious food by Paco such as Chorizo burger (they were a hit last year)
  • Live Music from 2.30 pm until late
  • Well stocked bar (important aspect, I think)
  • Great folk having fun
