Hyde Park Unity Day

Quoting from the Unity Day web site -

Hyde Park Unity Day is a day of celebration for the local community to show the best of whom we are.

The community had lost a local Pub, the 'Newlands' through riots in 1995, which attracted intense national media coverage and this led to a negative portrayal of the area which we as a community had to come to terms with ourselves. Hyde Park Unity Day is an association of individuals who give their time and talents freely to create a day celebrating our area and our diversity.

We have a Management Committee to help us stay on course with budgeting and planning and Area Coordinators who organise the various tasks that have to be done to ensure a day everyone can enjoy. Every year there is a core of people that have been involved in previous years, but we are always on the look out for new talent.
