May 2018: Funk N Roll

Final First Friday of the summer, and finally the weathergods were kind, and we were in the Squircle!!
‘Funk Force 5’ became ‘Jazz Force 5’ with a late lineup change due to a bereavement, thanks to Lauren for stepping in with Mike, Ayrton, Jacqui and Dan. Their smooth and groovy tunes were a great foil to the creative carnage of the chalk art..! This was great fun, with self portraits, spirals, spots and ultimately a free-for-all..Thanks to Martin and the Fire Service for helping cleanup afterwards.
Cheers to Erin and Tony who served up over 100 free sausages off their tiny BBQ, and Emily and Cheryl did a great job collecting community feedback about Featherston’s traffic issues: great idea thanks.
The Mini trains had a busy night after deciding to run the rides free- thanks team!!!
Thanks as ever to sponsors Creative Communities Scheme, Rotary, Featherston Community Board, Lee and KT- and all those who pitch in and help, and support Rebekah and myself with kind words and actions. xM
