We have been busy this summer, having fun and making sure our customers also had a good time. We went all the way to Birmingham to take part in Birmingham Eid Mela and also toured to Leicester Mela.
Both events had lots to offer; giant funfair and activities for children, market stalls heaving with South Asian treats, showcasing dance and music, circus acts and crafts and a firework extravaganza to finish.
We were delighted as we had the busiest stalls at the events, thanks to all of those who came along to join in having a fantastic day. Whether you have got a henna tattoo, your kids enjoyed the free face painting or you took part in our exciting competitions, we hope you enjoyed this community event as much as we did.
Our games for families were developed with South Asian families and culture in mind as we believe that maintaining traditions is core and it’s even more important to pass them on to the next generation. Children and moms were teaming up together and competing with other duos for a chance to win 3 Free DVDs and adorable heart-shaped dough cutters. Moms had to roll chapatti dough very thin and the child needed to cut hearts. The winner team needed to have most number of hearts within just three minutes.
People were seriously getting into the competitive spirit and commenting, “You’ve really brought out my competitive side here and it’s great that I can take part with my daughter.”
The day was truly packed with joyful emotions where children were having fun and learning how to make perfect chapatti. We were excited to create happy moments and memories for consumers and their families.
