What an incredible day!!

A combination of a wonderful event, the best weather England has seen for 8 months, some terrific musicians and that tremendous Bearwood community spirit, gave us an incredible May Day event in the park today. Tomorrow I will try to post a roll of honour to thank as many of the fantastic people who gave up hours of their time for not one penny piece of reward to make this event such a great day out for everyone… but for now, here are just some of the hundreds of photos of the event!
