Manor Green College teams up with Outreach 3 Way to create amazing artwork for Crawley club

Earlier this year, Crawley Wellbeing enlisted local artist Vanessa Cumper to facilitate collaborative workshops with Manor Green College and Outreach 3 way to create new artwork for Crawley’s Bluebird club.



Pupils from the college and participants from Outreach 3 Way worked with Vanessa to design four, floor to ceiling banners.

During the workshops they spoke to Vanessa about different instruments, music genres, colours and emblems that represent the Bluebird Club and created some of their own artwork which has been incorporated into the finished design.

The new artwork will be hung up at the next club night on Wednesday 20 November at The Hawth. 

The Bluebird Club is a night for people with learning disabilities and their friends. A chance to listen to the freshest sounds, relax in the chill out room, chat with friends and dance to great live music. 

Tickets cost £4 per person (£3.50 with a Compass Card) and carers go free. To book, call The Hawth Box office on 01293 553636.

Part of Dimensions, Outreach 3 Way is a Sussex charity that provides support for people with learning disabilities and autism.

Crawley Police increased their presence across Maidenbower Park after receiving reports of Anti Social Behaviour.

The reports included use of Class B drugs being taken within the park.

What constitutes antisocial behaviour?

There are three main categories for antisocial behaviour, depending on how many people are affected:

  • Personal antisocial behaviour is when a person targets a specific individual or group.
  • Nuisance antisocial behaviour is when a person causes trouble, annoyance or suffering to a community.
  • Environmental antisocial behaviour is when a person’s actions affect the wider environment, such as public spaces or buildings.

Sussex Police confirmed they are working with Crawley Borough council to deal with any reports of on going anti social behaviour at Maidenbower Park.

In a statement Crawley Police said:

“These reports are mainly focused on but are not limited to groups congregating in breach of previous Covid-19 guidelines and the use of Class B drugs in the park.”

The public are encouraged to continue to report any new incidents to Sussex Police via 101 or the Sussex Police internet reporting system. If the matter is an emergency then please ring 999
