A big thank you from the Bournville Village Festival organisers

The Bournville Village Council would like to thank everyone, especially all of our volunteers, who helped make this year's Bournville Village Festival so enjoyable. It was a wonderful day, rewarded with large crowds basking in the good weather.

Many visitors considered the Maypole dancing, by all of the children, to be the highlight of the day. A special thank you to Sue and Olivia Walsh, the maypole teachers, for all of the months of hard work needed to make such a marvellous spectacle so successful on the day.

We look forward to seeing you all again at the 2018 Bournville Village Festival.
