Kids and grown-ups swayed to the beat of the samba at a fun day in Letchworth last weekend.
The March iteration of the Wilbury Community Café, at St Thomas’ Church hall last Saturday, featured carnival face painting, Pokémon fun and more, on top of music from Garden City Samba.
There was also a special ceremony to recognise the role that the younger members of the community play in supporting the Wilbury Community Forum.
Councillor Gary Grindal said: “It’s important to ensure that young and old, and all those in between, feel engaged and empowered to help in their local community where they can – and it’s also important to recognise those achievements like this.”
Mr Grindal made a presentation to Charlie Edwards, who, as part of his Duke of Edinburgh bronze award, has spent three months volunteering at the café.
The new team of 10 youth council co-ordinators – replacing forum stalwart Immy Blackburn-Horgan – were then introduced and given gifts and badges.
They are Mary-Ellen Picking, Joshua, Alex and Hannah Kovacevic, Xander and Poppy Newland, Jessica, James and Sasha Hart, and Lola Dudderidge.
