Vaisakhi at Handsworth Park.

A great weekend with marvellous weather.On Saturday we dropped in to the St. George's Day celebrations at St. Stephen's Church in Edgewood Rd. We sat out in the garden and although only yards from a busy road it took on the atmosphere of an English country garden.
Then we called in to a birthday celebration for Vi Cannadine in Wolverton Rd. Vi is a stalwart of Longbridge Conservatives with over 50 years in the party. This was in honour of her 84th birthday and the house was packed with wellwishers.
On Sunday we were invited to the Vaisakhi celebrations in Handsworth Park. It was a great event and what a pleasure it was to walk among so many thousands of friends.
