‘Licensed to Rhyme Take Over’



Presented by and featuring former Birmingham poet laureate Spoz and Tom McCann.
The event will highlight the first public performance of the Redditch Borough Poem, a community poetry project to which many different individuals and groups have contributed. The idea is that lots of different people with a connection to Redditch each write one line of a poem celebrating the Borough and exploring what it means to live here, producing a unique model of what Redditch might look like if it was a poem.
There will also be an open mic, giving writers in Redditch (and beyond) a chance to share their own work in a warm and welcoming environment.

Community get-together at the Mosque

Photos from the Mosque visit last month. It was an opportunity for some refugees, the Church Mother’s Union Group and the Muslim community to mingle together. One refugee commented: “I just prayed for my family and everyone in Syria“.

The Mosque provided refreshments for the visitors. In addition, the Mother’s Union visitors also supported the newly established Syrian food business.

BRWR Craft Stall at The Bridge Church

Here are some photos from the Bridge Church, where the BRWR Craft Group displayed and sold their hand made items.
The Craft Group is a vehicle to further support and extend language acquisition in a “real life situation“ and help the refugees become more culturally aware through interaction with different individuals.
The Craft Group helps with integration and self esteem, as the ladies learn or teach us new skills! We made £55 from our sale, this will support the craft group activities.
