JHERA is organising a fireworks night on the 8th November at 7pm on Jesus Green.
There will be a sharing table for residents to bring cold and hot food and drinks.
We had a smashing evening on the green this weekend. Children and adults had a super evening of film, popcorn and delicious hotdogs (some of us had two!).
On behalf of the JHERA committee, members, associates residents and friends, we would like to extend our considerable thanks to Giff, Wendy and Rob for their efforts and perseverance to create such a wonderful inaugural JHERA Film Night. The ovation at the end was well deserved.
Giff and Wendy have asked to add the following:
‘…And a huge thanks to those who lent their equipment:
Rob – projector
Liz & Maria – amp, gazebo and cooking stoves
Kevin – cable cover
Olivier & Catherine – huge canopy
Alex – blackout
Dylan – camping table
Shaun – extension cables
Corinna – for helping serve hotdogs
The audience- for turning up despite the awful weather.
Giff & Wendy ‘

Thanks to everyone who came for the lovely sharing food and joining in the fun. Special thanks goes to Olivier and Catherine (JHERA committee member) for their wonderful contributions, including The Big Lunch sign on Jesus Green, and the bunting and hammocks.
We welcome any new ideas to bring our community together. Let us know if you have any ideas.
We’ll be celebrating the Big Lunch and Jo Cox day next Sunday (18th June). Hoping things will get going at 1pm on Jesus Green, but of course everyone welcome whenever they can make it. Do bring, food, drink and picnic gear, and anything you’d like to share.
Oh, and our regular Flower Market performer Jonny Holland will be playing for us!
Thanks to the amazing generosity of Rob and Adam, the Mini Olympics battled through the elements and everyone succeeded in making it an amazing afternoon. The children were oblivious to the rain and had fun leaping, hoping and tangerine and spoon racing. They were also thrilled to see their parents battling it out in the parents’ tug of war. Here are a few photos from the day. Do send us more if you have them.
Keep the Olympic torch burning! Join us as the streets and nations of Jesus Green compete for mini Olympic glory. Talk to your neighbours to get your street’s team together, or just turn up on the day and join a team. For children and adults, athletes and couch potatoes – teams and age categories will be arranged after registration.

The rain stopped and the clouds broke for our Big Lunch 2016 and Queen’s birthday celebrations. With a fly-by and jellied eels it was always going to be wonderful. Here are a few snaps. Let us know if you’d like to share yours.
