COMMUNITY spirit is alive and well in Eastfield following a successful community bazaar over the weekend.

It was organised by Eastfield Voice and Carole Gerada, one of the organisers, said she was very impressed by the youngsters who had enthusiastically helped out with Saturday’s event.

She said: “I’d say that there were 150 people that visited. People asked how I got the youths to work together – I just asked them to do it.”

Carole said that there were about 10 youngsters helping out on the day. She said: “One worked serving the teas and taking the cash. He was very responsible. It was the community doing it for the community – it was run by residents for residents.”

She added that there was a performance from a five-year-old hip hop dancer and Jonathan Gaunt read some of his poetry during the event.

The event took place at Eastfield Community Centre between 10am and 3pm with a special ribbon cutting ceremony to officially open proceedings.

The event also featured a table-top sale, children’s corner, tombola, raffle, cake stall and refreshments.

People were invited to enter a best decorated hard boiled egg competition with prizes for the best entries.

Carole said that a similar event had been arranged to take place on Sunday June 5; for further information call Carole on (01723) 585350 or 07790 912077.
