Last year we very much enjoyed participating in FestivALL in July. A month dedicated to celebrating the diverse and welcoming communities in Gloucestershire.
Various events happened across the county.. WRITE UP YOUR STREET had an event, “Lifted!” in Montipellier Gardens, Cheltenham.
This year things have to be different practically, but the message is still the same. FestivALL is a month (July) dedicated to celebrating the diverse and welcoming communities in Gloucestershire.
This year FestivALL is all about linking up, celebrating and building connections, on and offline, and making sure that everyone is included in some way. During the Covid-19 pandemic people have been finding different and creative ways of keeping in touch with friends, family and neighbours and we want to celebrate this.
We are asking people across Gloucestershire to make their own paper chains, and either display them in a window for their friends and neighbours to see, or share a picture online (or both!)
We think that a paper chain is a great representation of how people have come together and linked up with friends, old and new, during these unprecendented times.
