Rosie’s walk and festival tomorrow!


What a fine local charity.

To continue the rash of parish notices, tomorrow (Sunday 5th July 2015) sees the Rosie’s Charity Walk and Festival in aid of the wonderful Rosie’s Helping Hands Charity. I’m sure readers know the story of how the charity started, and now in the fourteenth year, this event raises a whole lot of cash for local good causes and proves that good things really can come from tragedy.

As well as the walks, there are events for all from 12:o0pm at the old Aldridge Airfield site off Bosty Lane. There will be loads of stuff to do and live music right up until 4pm – and this year has a Bollywood theme!

The organisers posted on their Facebook page:

Please join us on Sun 5th July Aldridge Airport from Noon for a great day out! You can enter the walks on the day or just come along for the entertainment on site.

Money raised will help various children and young people’s projects in the Walsall area, as well as providing more outdoor items for the play attached to the children’s ward at Walsall Manor Hospital.

Choice of 2 easy short walks : Pleasant 1 mile woodland walk or pretty 3 mile walk with live music and BBQ at the Longhorn Pub on the route.

Non walkers welcome to join in festival from Noon until 4pm with live music, art & craft activities, craft stalls, pony rides, circus skills (no clowns) children’s fun fair and much more. Walsall Studio School are organizing the live entertainment on stage.

Please pop along and help this great local cause.

Best wishes to Karen and Sean, and best foot forward to all walking. Looks like being a cracking day.
