Transition Heathrow wins best float at the Hayes Carnival

On Saturday, Transition Heathrow set up camp for the second time at the annual Hayes Carnival. Not only did we have our own space in the park, but this year we also took part in the parade. Built out of bicycles, our pedal-powered float won first prize and the Mayor of Hillingdon presented us with a trophy and a cheque for £100!

After touring Hayes town with crazy choreographed dancing, amazing trash fashion outfits, and banging tunes – we made our way to Barra Hall Park. Thanks to Coltek we had a solar-powered stage with bands playing all day, on top of this, we had a café with cakes and drinks, a growing area providing the community with plants and seeds for free, and a free shop with donated clothes.

The day was a great success and gave us the opportunity to show many people what our project is about. Thank you to all the bands that played, and thank you to everyone who put in lots of time and effort in the lead up to the event to make it all happen. Hopefully see you there next year!
