The chairperson for Coleman Evington Tenants and Residents Association, Jamal Abdulla said, “After months of planning and organizing, drumming support from the local residents, we were shocked to discover that there is such a great need for the association in the area. We have revived the previous association and hope the community will benefit from our efforts. The committee have worked really hard to serve the community with this family fun day event. We would like to thank our supporters and partners – the Evington Echo, Leicester Ageing Together (LAT) with their partners Living Streets, Action on Hearing and the Papworth Trust, all our stall holders and customers and sponsors and Rowlatt’s Hill Co-op and Tesco Metro.”
