Fantastic WestFest Big Sunday 2016!

It has been great to see such a huge turnout of folk on Magdalen Green at WestFest’s Big Sunday this afternoon – what a great success!   
The fabulous weather certainly helped as well to make it such a wonderful day.
Thanks go to the WestFest team for again organising such a superb community event.   
Here’s a video and some photos from this afternoon :



The bandstand restoration is not quite finished but is looking really good!

WestFest’s Big Sunday 2016

WestFest’s Big Sunday 2016 takes place from 1pm to 7pm this Sunday – 5th June – on Magdalen Green.
Big Sunday is now a firm fixture on the start of summer calendar and can be enjoyed by everyone.    You can spend a day lounging on the grass listening to a free concert – or better still up on your feet and dancing! 
You can wander through the great range of stalls having a brilliant shopping experience with excellent food and drink, a range of handmade craft items on sale and information about West End community groups.   I’ll be helping on the stand promoting the soon to be re-established Harris Education and Recreation Association that will be running evening classes in the school’s fabulous new building in the future.
So – don’t miss Big Sunday – more details here.
