FRED's "Create a Poster" Competition for Kick Off The Summer 2016

Remember this from last year?

Well it's back this year on the 28th to 30th May. And to "kick off" the Kick Off the Summer Event we asked the schools in the borough to create the poster. 

And we have a winner: Thank you to Demi Leigh Timms from Grangetown congratulations!

We love it!

Here's what happened last year.

See you on the beach

Fred back on the beach in February 2016

FRED started this year with a healthy 30+ volunteers braving the fresh morning which opened up into bright sunlight and sporadic showers. The intention was to meet at the Regent Cinema and work our way to the masonry at Majuba where the council workers were going to help us clear up the exposed debris following the wild winter weather.

Picking up litter and rubble on the way we only reached the boating lake as there was so much to clear. Thankfully the council got on with Majuba in any case. Next month on the 6th March we shall meet at the cinema and walk down to Majuba to continue the much needed work here and to welcome the National Citizen Service to our beach who will be covering our work and our desire to create an attractive place to live and visit. Join us and be the difference.

FRED win Gazette Green Community Award 2015

Back in 2014 We were recognised for our efforts to create an attract place to live by Coastal View and were awarded their Community Champion Award. We were also runners up at the Gazette Community awards.

This year we picked up the Community Green Award at the Middlesbrough event. Thank you to all our volunteers who have helped us go from strength to strength putting pride back into our town and lifting the quality of life.

Here's to 2016
