This year the community of Lower Bevendean celebrated their neighbourhood by putting on a traditional summer fair, which was organised by Friends of Farm Green, Friends of BevFest and Action in Bevendean Community. Held on a nice summer’s day on 13th July, it brought out a variety of community groups providing activities in the Lower Bevendean area to promote their services, but also local residents selling their handcrafted goods. Whilst listening to the summer-feeling inducing steel band, the tea tent provided sweet and fruity refreshments and you could get a yummy and low-cost vegan burger. Children could enjoy face painting, raffles, bouncy castle and enjoying the green space with its new playground. You can view a video of the fair on facebook.
