In 2019, the Heald Green Community Festival took place on the hottest day of the year and people came out in their thousands to enjoy a real Village Event, which started with a Fancy Dress parade for the children around the local streets. This was led by the Phoenix Pipe Band and was enjoyed by everyone.
Unfortunately, the Festival could not take place last year because of the Coronavirus regulations about gatherings. The Festival committee had started to plan the event when a decision was made at the beginning of April to cancel for 2020, the week before the programme should have gone to the printers.
The committee had some fresh ideas for the next Festival from some new members. A few of the older members would like to retire after organising the Festival for many years. We don’t know how the Coronavirus will pan out this year but are hoping that some form of event will take place. Watch this space.
