Due to Covid we can’t do everything that we wanted this year and we have had to defer the main festival til June 2022. However we want to support and encourage Heaton with some smaller events. See below for what they are and how you can get involved
Get in touch with us via the Contact section of the website if you want to learn more
Saturday June 26th - 2-4pm
We want to try and help out with a little TLC around the streets and parks of Heaton. We aim to help out with the little things that will keep things looking the way we’d all like it. We’ve been working with the Council and with Urban Green (who run the parks) to pull together a list of different jobs that need doing and we’re going to help with two activities
In the Parks – Gardening, weeding and edging tasks. Mostly focussed around benches and steps in Heaton & Armstrong park
In the Streets of Heaton – the council have asked us to take on tidying up and litter picking across 3 zones of Heaton.
- The Terraces either side of Warwick Street
- Some of the Terraces and Avenues either side of Chillingham Road
- The Spinney Estate
We’ll have all the equipment, but you may want to bring your own gloves.
June 19 to June 27
Have a go at our Treasure Hunt with stops around Heaton Park and a draw from all the correct entries, for our grand prizes. We have Breakfast pack from Block and Bottle and a Tea for Two from Monsieur Crêpe.
Here’s the link to the clues, and you will need to submit your answers to either our Contact section of the website or post a hardcopy with some contact details through the letter box at Heaton Baptist Church on Heaton Road.
The deadline for submissions will be midnight on June 27th and we will make the prize draw shortly after that, although the route will still work after that if you feel like doing it just for fun.
