Another successful Stirchley Village FunDay at Hazelwell Park came and went, but what a day! The weather just got worse as the day progressed, but in Karen Steven's words THE SHOW MUST GO ON, and what a show it was, with bouncy castles, face painting, badge making, the animal man, and many more, all braving the elements
11am saw the opening by the deputy Lord Mayor Councillor Randal Brew OBE.
There were two main Marquees, one offering refreshment kindly put on by the Bournville Scouts. Alongside the scouts was a Mendhi and nails bar, by Prya's, Pershore road Stirchley. ( the old Post Office),
The second marquee was Stirchley Neighbourhood forum's and was where the Tombola and Raffle was run.
There was Football with teams from the Police, local youths, and other organisations,on the field .
Four enjoyable Duck races organised by karen Stevens and her team, with prizes presented by the Deputy Lord Mayor.
The afternoon brought lots of rain but it didn't stop a Bellydancing demonstration by Belly Dance Elements from Stirchley Community Centre, in the main arena
The local police including our own PCSO Sally Stor, were giving out a range of items; including, carbon monoxide testers, keyrings,stickers,security marker pens, as well as crayons, felts and goodies for the children.
