The pandemic limited events in 2020. However, many streets organised distanced concerts and social events, when allowed.
We could not organise Open Gardens in June and so it went online. Many residents posted photos and tours of their gardens on Facebook.
Argyle and Chester Streets could not have their annual Street Party and so there was a Safe Space Event in August. This was a fun afternoon on the Recreation Ground with wellie throwing, music, ball games and children’s competitions, all carefully arranged to be safe for everyone.
Sunday 27th June 2.00 – 4.00pm
The Jumble Trail gave us the opportunity wander round the IFRA streets to see what’s on offer and find surprise talents, chat with neighbours, share enthusiasms and learn about our local area! Using front grdens and positioned to allow for COVID 19 safety precautions, residents sold arts and crafts, home-made jams, cakes, plants, and other items or left stuff for people to pick up for free.
The Community event was a chance to find out about some local charities: Asylum Welcome, Oxford Mutual Aid, Comper Foundation & SS Mary & John School’s amongst others.
