Ascension Day

On Thursday 9th May 2013, residents and co-workers from our community enjoyed going on a walk around the lakes in Willen. The lakes at Willen are some of the largest purpose-built balancing lakes in the UK. They were designed to take run-off surface water from Milton Keynes. There are also lots of trees surrounding the lakes and they are a good place for nature as lots of swans and wild ducks can be seen there.
Ascension Day commemorates the bodily Ascension of Jesus into heaven.  It is universally celebrated and is often celebrated as a feast. Ascension Day is traditionally celebrated on a Thursday, the fortieth day of Easter.

Community Barbecue

On Monday 6th May 2013 which was a bank holiday residents and co-workers in the community had a Community Barbecue on the grass which is opposite of the Chrysalis Theatre. To eat, we could choose from burgers, sausages, beef and pork steaks. There was also lots of salad which included tomatoes, potatoes salad, pasta salad and coleslaw. The weather was warm sunny and made a great day for a barbecue. As it was such a nice day, there was also maypole dancing.
