Maindee Festival

Maindee Festival is a local community event with various stalls ranging from food to clothes to even a band marquee!

Everyone enjoyed playing games and taking part in activities set up which included a mural to draw or write on, spoken word tent and also enjoy cold ice cream on the hot day. YMCO Newport had set up a South Asian food stall. The stall included samosas, bhajis, rice, dhaal, chicken curry and much more!

It was an amazing opportunity to showcase different food and the food was a massive hit! We also spoke to the community to better get to know each other. This was a brilliant day and look forward to the many more Maindee Festivals that will be organised!
