On April 21st 2005 children from Spring Lane School together with friends and relatives met to clear Cloisters Pocket Park of undergrowth and rubble prior to its redesign the following month

CLOISTERS POCKET PARK -OFFICIAL OPENING
JULY 2nd 2005
On Saturday July 2nd 2005 the newly redesigned Cloisters Pocket Park was opened All that hard work had paid off and now it was time for local residents, children from Spring Lane School, parents, relatives and friends to celebrate !
The day was bright and sunny and everyone gathered for a good time.
Food was prepared by the local Kingdom Life Church and there was a barbecue which everyone enjoyed.
The children were entertained by a magician and an excellent steel band provided the music.
The community in Spring Boroughs has achieved so much over the years and the renewal of the Pocket Park as an area for the enjoyment of the local residents is yet another example of cooperation and self-help The children have also benefited from helping to restore their environment; their involvement in this project was vital for the future of the area

The memories of the older generation brought the war to life. The trip to Duxford was an opportunity for the generations to share their thoughts and learn from each other.
The weather was sunny and warm and everyone enjoyed the trip.
