Yesterday saw the biggest Music in the Park yet held at Whitehead Gardens with eight live performers covering a wide range of musical tastes. Brass band, choir, samba, steel band, folk and rock – there really was something for everyone.

I spent most of the time helping on the bar where as we rapidly ran out of the excellent real ale supplied by Bank Top Brewery we had to make frequent topping up trips!

It is a long day twelve hours from start to finish but it is great to see so many people coing along to join in a real community event. Everyone who attended should thank Geoff and Gill Leach who play a central role in planning the event and pulling it all together. In addition to Gill and Geoff there are dozens of others who all freely give of their time to make this event happen. Thank-you to each and every one!
