Blowing in the wind

Bromsgrove Arts Alive’s Fun Day at Sanders Park in Bromsgrove on June 22 was badly affected by the high winds, resulting in members’ stands and demonstrations being cancelled.

However, something was salvaged for the visitors.

Although the day was fairly warm with bright sunshine, following the drizzle of the Elizabethan Market the day before, the high winds did not allow the gazebos to be erected.

But the Midland Sinfonia concert did go ahead in the park cafe, by kind invitation of CP Catering.

Event organiser Keith Woolford said: “It was a rather more intimate classical music setting than that originally planned, and a credit to the eight young professional musicians who were determined that the show must go on!

“We hope to rearrange the Fun Day for later in the year, having learned a salutary lesson about the British weather.”

Special guests The Austin Ten Drivers Club really won the day with a marvellous show of sixteen cars from their enthusiastic members.

Alan Pugh from the club was delighted with the number of visitors during the afternoon.
