Community of Oak Road

Spent Saturday evening with the family at a fish 'n' chip supper held on the Colebrook Recreation Ground in Sherwood by the CORE (Community of Oak Road Estate) group. Wooly hats and coats didn't stop karaoke, friendship and a good old fashioned sense of community.

Goes to show that if you recommission an old, grafitti-covered changing room block and hand the keys to the residents to use as a base, you can achieve more than ploughing thousands in Government money into the latest trendy, headline-grabbing "regeneration initiative"..
