We feel really pleased that the event was such a success thanks to the involvement of many in the community, who proved that even when resources are tight - much can be achieved by working together. It is interesting that because the event is free, performers and providers enter into the spirit of it and work with us to deliver our outcomes within our limited budget. We received donations from the Karpet Kickers and other service providers and members of the public and cut the costs significantly - due to the fantastic good will of all involved in our event. With special thanks to West Merica Police, Wyre Forest District Council, St George's Church, Wyre Forest Islamic Community Group and Kidderminster Library.
The Karpet Kickers were as always completely brilliant and we are particularly proud of the local roots of the band...the singer Gehardt Kruckow is also the Wildlife Officer of Friends of St George's Park.
This great day which involved all of the local community and visitors from further afield demonstrates yet again what self help and determination can achieve in an area like Horsefair. People told us they had a great time which is good since that was the reason we did it in the first place. Our event has made St George's Day a shared celebration irrespective of our backrounds, ages or gender. Here's a few bits of video shot between doing a lot of other stuff and enjoying the day. The weather wasn't too unkind although the wind damaged our new gazebo, the rain held off until after we had packed the whole show away. Here's a bit of what was going on as we got together to celebrate St George's Day 2015. We have made St George the patron saint of community togetherness as well as of England itself (and quite a few other places too as it happens).
Here's the trailer to the Movie St George's Day 2015 in the People's Park of 1927.
