Intergenerational, interfaith TreeFest entry

Young people from The Vench Adventure Playground along with older people from United Communities sheltered housing scheme Roshni Ghar came together to make decorations for this years TreeFest at St Mary Redcliffe Church. The tree they have created was on be display from Friday 9th – Wednesday 14th December at the church in the centre of Bristol.

Residents were so pleased to have the young people around, one resident said “they certainly livened the place up”. Residents and young people worked together; sharing stories and skills, the evening full of laughter followed by a lot of mess! The theme for the tree is home, each participant decorated a cardboard house template with their interpretation of what home means to them. The display invited people to light a candle for more housing to highlight the shortage of affordable housing in the city.

The tree has now been moved to Buzz Café Lockleaze, on Gainsborough Square, one of our award winning housing schemes.

United Communities supports many activities in Horfield and Lockleaze.
