The GIR Celebration Tea!

Written by stickyeyes, 8th April 2011

Around 170 GIR group members, facilitators, and TRO staff turned out for the National GIR Celebration Tea that took place on Wednesday 6th April at the Floral Pavilion. Some had even come all the way from London for the Tea, and it was a really fantastic event. The Floral Pavilion's seaside location provided the perfect opportunity for all our group members, from all over the UK, to come together and celebrate being a part of Get Into Reading. The afternoon was a great success, with lots of readings, testimonials, and a few GIR activities taking place between the lovely tea and cake. We also set up a video diary booth,  where all group members had the chance to go and record their thoughts and feelings about GIR, and a collage activity (which you can see the results of below).

Here are a few pictures from the afternoon (c. Katie Clark at TRO):

And here’s some of the fantastic feedback we’ve received:

"I enjoyed being able to meet new people and go home with new friends."
"Terrific testimonials and readings."
"Lovely to meet all the people involved. Amazing!"

If you were there, we hope you enjoyed yourself!
