This is my England

A sunny Sunday afternoon in Palfrey Park, Walsall. Lots of local food, music and fun. Caldmore and the wider Walsall community came together in all its diversity to have fun, eat, and laze around. Caldmore Village Festival was in full swing on it’s second of three days.

And this year, they let me in too, which was nice.

The curry goat and salt fish were divine; the atmosphere great. The young lad on the guitar and the rapper clearly have great musical careers ahead. Palfrey Park shone like the jewel it surely is – I’d never been here before, and it’s gorgeous. It achieves the high standard of the Arboretum – it’s a great place.

After the sadness and distress of recent days – and the meat-headed extremists on all sides playing to the gallery – this was a refreshing snapshot of my town, and the country I love, very much at ease with itself. Just the restorative required.

I even caught the sun. I’ve turned a sort of pinkish-white from my normal blue.

Caldmore Village Festival continues tomorrow. Do go check it out.

  4. Lovely! Tantalisingly, I was in Caldmore – but engaged in poaching salmon (in a pan) for my Aunty Kath, Mom and me.

    Hi bob

    As the project manager for the restoration and regeneration of Palfrey Park from 2002 onwards until my promotion I’m honoured and grateful for your positive comments about the park. The Palfrey Park Friends and Users Association deserve great credit as without them over the years mon of this would be possible. Walsall has some excellent parks and I’m really proud to head up the service in a town I was born, bred and still live

    Thanks again
