Great news! Warley Woods Community Trust is hosting its 13th Picnic in the Park next Sunday 13th July.
There's a programme full of events and activities for everybody to enjoy so why not bring your rug, make a picnic and take everybody you know to Warley Woods for the afternoon? The sunshine's been invited to come along too!
Music's on from 1pm - 6pm courtesy of the friendly bunch, the Bearwood Promoters who put on the Bearwood Shuffles at Lightwoods Park Bandstand and features local bands and a local dance group including Simon Boswell, Jane James, Peter Hyde and Friends,Ethel Vince, Paul Miller and Mr Apollo, The Fidgets, The Strangest Feeling and All Hail Regale.
There will also be a range of children’s activities, including lots of craft making opportunities,face painting, bouncy castles and golf games.
The number of stalls and activities havebeen increased on previous years; so lots of crafts, food and gifts to browse. There will also be local charities tempting you with tombolas and cakes.
The Trust will have a bookstall, samosas, games and their own tombola to help raise money for the maintenance of Warley Woods.
The Warley Woods regulars the Warley Woods Pacers (runners) and Kickstart Bootcamp will be offering fun activities. For those who don’t want the fuss of making their own picnic, or if they forget it - there will be food available so no one will go hungry.
For the four legged park visitors, there is the dog show – anyone can bring their canine friend to enter. Classes include the dog that looks most like its owner and the waggiest tail. This year’s sponsor – Companion Care Vets of Oldbury has taken special charge of helping with the dog show, so there will be excellent prizes along with special categories for their customers.
Viv Cole, Trust Manager explained to welovebearwood that “We are really looking forward to this year’s event. Many thanks to Bearwood Promoters for organising the music, Companion Care Vets, Oldbury for sponsoring the whole event for the third year. Then with the all Warley Woods volunteers and supporter, we have a really strong community team working together to
create a great event for everyone to enjoy.”
