Filwood Glow

On Wednesday 20 January 2016 people of all ages visited the Filwood Broadway to decorate their bicycles and scooters with lights and then joined up to form a light-up parade along the street. The idea behind this event was to banish the post-Christmas blues and bring residents of Filwood and Knowle West together in an evening of light, colour and spectacle.

In preparation the Year 6 children from Oasis Academy Connaught worked with an artist to design and make lanterns for an illuminated garden that brightened up the shopping street. This event helped brighten people’s spirits, enabling them to experience a different side of the street and explore fun and healthy ways of getting around.
