Thanks to the hard work of Jim Whittaker and all the volunteers of Friends of Kingswood Park, this year the Royal Horticultural Society scored Kingswood an ‘advancing’ assessment over last year’s ‘improving’ assessment for the Town Centre.
The Friends, who aim to improve Kingswood Park and the surrounding area so residents and visitors have a place to be proud of, met at Kings Chase Shopping Centre to receive their Britain in Bloom award.
The photograph shows two councillors (April Begley and Pat Rooney), Richard Westacott, Chair Churches Together in Kingswood, Jim Whittaker (hat) and various volunteers, with Kings Chase Centre Manager Richard Ryan.
No, your eyes and ears do not deceive you... the percussion sessions you'll hear at Kings Chase on the first Friday of each month really are being played on junk!
As you can see on the photo, Paul from Twin Wave is playing a water pipe...
He also uses bicycle wheels that are de-spoked and then wrapped in bright coloured parcel tape.
With the addition of a home made drumstick, the combination is rather like a bodrhan that you would hear in Irish folk music.
Twin Wave are a group of trained facilitators with over 20 years experience delivering workshops, projects and events.
They use a number of artforms and therapies including music, sound therapy, accessible SEN workshops, creative writing and music tech.
