Stirchley & Brookside fun day a great success

Yesterday's Stirchley & Brookside fun day at Stirchley was a great success with large crowds despite the less than fantastic weather.

The whole event went smoothly with help from staff at the parish council, parish councillors, Brookside Improvement Group and other residents who volunteered as stewards.

The only bit of trouble during the whole event was when we were clearing up at the end of the day and some people stole a load of bottles of water and squash from one of the tables set up for the children's football and tag rugby.  Luckily they were spotted and myself and an off-duty CSO set off after them and got the bottles back!

It was an excellent day and I'd like to say well done to Crawford Douglas for organising it, to all the staff at the parish council for coming out and supporting it and to all the other volunteers who helped staff the event and to the children who came along to provide entertainment.
