Well, the weather wasn’t very summery, and I must have pitched up after the crowds had receded, but at noon there was some great stuff at the Brownhills Town Festival. Sadly, bad weather and a lack of awareness seemed to collide, but the traders and folk on the ground clearly worked very hard indeed. The one thing that actually occurred to me as I was wandering round was that if this was actually on the same day as the canal festival, the two would compliment each other beautifully.
The band playing in Ravens Court were brilliant. If you like a bit of mature blues/rock, they’re right up your street, and whoever did the barbecue cooked great food. Nice to see Nicole and the gang from Wilkinson hard at work fundraising for Cancer Research, too; their appeal for sponsors for their Snowdon walk is still open, folks.
I hope from this, Brownhills various groups can work together and move to organise something a bit more unified. This has the makings of a great event. Let’s build on it – and next time, please get the advertising out as soon as you can.
Cheers to all involved.
