May Bank Holiday weekend 23rd & 24th May
Even song at St Johns Chelmorton with David Race. Then Monday Bank Holiday at Monyash village festival for bank Holiday Monday. The village packed full of car lines on every road, folk all about in the soft grey weather holding back the rain, walking dogs, pushing prams, village fete at its best. Village fun began on the green, a Maypole, football game area and stands for cake and flowers. The primary school well was smartly dressed in the theme of secret garden. Behind it in the school playground lay a fab blue and white bouncy castle. Walking beyond the village toward the Methodist church we found the main well. Very last minute, a well for the new princess. White stalk above, dated May 4th for the birth of the new Princess, ‘Charlotte, Elizabeth, Dianna’. Well done Monyash. Back to the village green for best church baked Victoria sponge cake on the stalls. Vicar Richard was by the church, perfect pit stop for more tea and cake and then a look into the antiques house at the smaller stalls. Chelmorton church warden Irene Ottey had a fine stall laid out.
