Urban Gamez 2016
On the 26th of August, Urban Gamez came to shine light on Grahame Park Estate for the 6th consecutive year. The aim of the day was to promote community cohesion and healthy living by bringing a positive vibes the estate. Children, teenagers and adults all came together to enjoy the sun, the music and the rest of the activities.
A 60m race track, a DJ, Craft activities, a rock climbing wall, a BBQ, face painters and many more activities. Mayor of Barnet, Councillor David Long staff, attended and delivered a Sky Sports like commentary of the many races. Middlesex University, Saracens RFC, Barnet FC and Burnt Oak leisure centre also came along with more activities on the concourse, from boxing to football and rugby.
Our team used the day to make a video and ask the residents of Grahame Park Estate one question… ‘Can one person change the world?’ the residents would answer by putting a ball into the relevant tube either ‘yes’ or ‘no’, if they wanted to add a few words they were interviewed, the video is/will be up on YouTube. the day was a success with 100 residents of Grahame Park Estate involved in this video, a total of 67 voted ‘yes’ and 33 voted ‘no’.
We send our thanks all the organisations, volunteers, and participants that made Urban Gamez 2016 a huge success.
