Community fun day draws 150 to Bramley Villagers

Bramley villagers kinder leeds festival

More than 150 people attended a family fun day at Bramley Villagers Community Club, as part of the Kinder Leeds Festival.

Attendees enjoyed stalls from BARCA, Gamcare, Bramley Elderly Action, Canal & Rivers Trust, Brain Tumour Trust Charity and there was a facepainter.

Entertainment came from DAZL dancers, Bramley Parish Theatre players and Dottie, the pantomime dame.

A wonderful spread of food provided by Craig Parker and Rebecca Durant, including donations from Greggs and Mr and Mrs Patel of the Wine Shop in Bramley.

Community report Keef Williamson captured the event on video:

The event was funded by Bramley & Stanningley councillors MICE money and Full Circle Funerals of Broad Lane.

David Billington, Community Impact and Sustainability Lead at Full Circle Funerals, said: “We feel very lucky to be part of such a wonderful community here in Bramley, and we know first hand how important reducing isolation and keeping connected is to maintaining your overall physical and mental health.

“So, when we found out about the Kinder Leeds festival, we felt it was part of our duty of care for the community, that we help to support, to work with with as many people locally as we could to give something back and help to arrange an event which would bring people together to look after each other. “

Cllr Kevin Ritchie (Lab, Bramley & Stanningley) said: “We had a wonderful day celebrating Kinder Leeds week. Everybody had a fantastic time and it was great to be able to put on a free family fun day. A huge thanks to Bramley Villagers for hosting us, Craig and Rebecca for the amazing food and Greggs and The Wine Shop Bramley for the donations.

“The entertainment from DAZL & Bramley Parish Theatre players was brilliant, and the stall holders who gave up their time were all kept very busy, which was great to see.

“Thank you to Full Circle Funerals & BARCA for their help setting up the event, it was great to see young people from BARCA helping out with such enthusiasm on their craft stall. We are already looking forward to next year and celebrating kindness and community in Bramley.”

Kinder Leeds is running community events across Leeds throughout the week. It exists to promote the values of kindness, compassion and wellbeing as perhaps the most important core values that must come to the fore if society is to flourish in a way that supports the wellbeing of all its members.
