Allesley Green

Allesley Green is an estate built in three parts in the 1980s. It is very much part of the parish of St Andrew’s. This means that its residents have the right of any parishioner to be married in the church, have children christened there and be buried in the graveyard
for as long as there is room. However, given the distance the church building is from the estate, we believe it is important to consciously ensure the link between Allesley Green and St Andrew’s Church works well. St Andrew’s has a dedicated team of people, chaired by the Vicar, who seek to work creatively on the estate to ensure that God’s love is
made manifest. They can be contacted via gregsmith31760@tiscali.co.uk

A new Allesley Green prayer group met for the first time on

Treasure Hunt
A small number of us had a fun afternoon looking for clues around the Allesley Green estate. Congratulations to Kam and her two boys who won the £25 meal voucher. Thanks to the Unicorn for kindly providing this. For a small donation, treasure hunt quiz sheets are still available from gregsmith31760@tiscali.co.uk for anyone wanting a challenging couple of hours, entailing a couple of miles of walking.

Games and Skittles Evening
This Games and Skittles evening at the Jaguar Social Club on June 24th 2016 was jointly hosted by St Andrews Church and Allesley Green Residents Association.  The evening was well attended by both residents of the estate alongside church members and their friends.  We enjoyed two varieties of skittles as well as a challenging picture quiz (thanks Lilias!), giant connect 4 and much else besides.  The Jag club were generous hosts and the chicken in the basket supper was enjoyed by all.  The team of local ward councillors proved competitive in the skittles, but were ultimately not placed, but made up for it by winning all the raffle prizes!  Meanwhile, rather fittingly, the Chair of the Residents Association, Tony Simons, and his family made off with first prize.  Impartial judges assure us that everything was above board.

Beetle Drive
St. Andrew’s hosted a Beetle Drive at Park Hill School on Friday 6th March, attended by over 30 people with a wide age range.  A great evening’s fun was had by all, with amazing cakes that very quickly disappeared, and a friendly but competitive atmosphere.  Congratulations to Ken and Jenny Battersby of Peregrine Close who were the happy winners of some pre-Easter chocolate!

Information:

Juniper Park
Juniper Park is a children’s playground (the only one on the Allesley Green estate) situated off Juniper Drive.  It has been somewhat neglected over the years and for local residents, the final straw was the slide being stolen.  St Andrew’s Church has worked hard to support the Residents Association in a bid to obtain sufficient funds to renew and upgrade the park so that it is a fitting site for our children and grandchildren to play.  A grant of £50,000 has been obtained from WREN to replace outdated equipment and to provide a new play surface.  Work on Juniper Park was completed in early March, with wonderful new playground equipment being installed. An opening ceremony took place on 20th March, presided over by the Bishop of Coventry. Here are some photos from the opening ceremony:
