Ian Morton-Jones writes to me from the grey Lubyanka that is Walsall’s Civic Centre to alert me of a wonderful, free event going down in the Arboretum in Walsall on Sunday, 9th September. Ian’s appealing for stallholders, too, so if you think you’d like to take part, do give him a shout. Contact details are listed below.
I know a number of Walsall Council folk are working very hard on this, so the event deserves our support.
I wonder if you could find room in your heart and blog to mention this event?
There will be a big, brash pdf of the event flyer along in a day or so, but if you’d link to this/mention this in the meantime we’d be very grateful.
There’s no tickets to buy, as entry is free for all.
