IN brilliant sunshine, 260 people visited the Oxmoor Development Showcase, Oxmoor 2006, last Tuesday evening.

Some 200 people took advantage of the free barbecue and displays from projects including the children's playgroup, Moor Play, The Juice Bar, a young person's cafe which opens on Saturdays selling smoothies; information about healthy eating in schools, youngsters' vegetable growing projects and details of the new Oak Tree Health Centre to be opened this summer.

The event was the first of its kind arranged by the Oxmoor Community Action Group on the day of its annual general meeting at the St Barnabus Centre. Some 5,000 leaflets about the event were delivered by organisers and put through people's doors inviting them to take part. The occasion was sponsored by Sainsbury's and Waitrose.
