Yes, in our backyard 

To the editor,

Hats off to Rod, of the Bloomfield Community Centre, and his entire volunteer crew for the incredibly wonderful and unexpectedly huge local block party that they put on for the adjoining residents of Almon and Bilby in Halifax's north end recently. Spriggs Lane, an eyesore of a road (if it can be generously called a road as the city refuses to take responsibility for it), was transformed for a few hours into a haven of neighbourliness.

There was donated and delicious food and drink, a fully amped and lit stage for an open-mic song and dance, a spectacular show of fire twirling and so much more. I still can't believe it was all right in our backyard. It was a shining example of generosity. Good on you, Rod, and thanks so much.
