Video of this year’s festival

Here are some moments of this year’s festival captured by our videographer Romica Jones.

Thank you to everyone who came for making it a lovely community event, especially the children who made the parade longer than ever this year.

Would you like to help to make next year’s festival even better?

Some of the Festival committee members are getting older and would love to be replaced by younger,  more energetic people in Heald Green who may have new ideas for the Festival. If anyone is interested, please ring Margaret on 437 7197 where they can get further information and support. It would be a pity if the Festival couldn’t go ahead for the want of a few more interested helpers.

Thanks to everyone concerned for making it a great afternoon yesterday.
