Carnival season in full flow!

The last few weekends have been busy times as we’ve been out fund-raising at various carnivals – well this is supposed to be summer, after all! Unfortunately the weather seemed to be running a little behind…

First we were over at Willenhall Carnival on 15 June – as well as a couple of really heavy downpours we saw some decent spells of sunshine so there was still a reasonable number of people out and about.

The following week we travelled down to Brintons Park in Kidderminster. It started raining before we’d even finished setting up, and sadly didn’t improve a great deal until later in the afternoon. Consequently it didn’t seem as busy as we were expecting, but it was understandable.

Taking a break from the carnival mood, Ashwood Nurseries had kindly invited us back for the last weekend in June. Both days turned out dry and bright, albeit rather blustery, and the chance to look round the wonderful plants (and buy a couple) ended the weekend nicely.

This weekend saw another regular – the Wombourne Carnival – which is always the first Sunday in July. And what a day! The hottest day of the year brought everyone out to enjoy the day and make the most of the glorious weather.  And with Andy Murray triumphing at Wimbledon, it’s been a memorable day.

And there’s a big weekend ahead to bring this run of fund-raising events to a close – the Wolverhampton City Show is on in West Park, and we’ll be there on both days. It looks like the great weather could still be around too, so hopefully there will be plenty of people about and it will be another successful weekend for us.
