The Garden Community for Garden Lovers



July 30th Pelsall Music Live, Rebecca’s (Boos) brainchild. It was a lot of hard work, but what a success.
It may not be Glastonbury, but it was a gloriously sunny day and there was no mud! All artists gave their time for free, everyone had a wonderful day and a lot of money was raised. I was one proud mummy:-))

This is the Electric Pride Marquee. All proceeds to Pelsall Pride, a community organisation which in partnership with Walsall Council and Musicians For life helped Boo with the organisation of this wonderful music festival.

Paul, Mitch, Robyn and Aislinn when we first arrived. Water needed to survive the heat!

The Lock In at the Electric Pride Marquee, No 2 son Chris in centre, drummer Baden obscured. I’m afraid this was the only band I watched at the electric marquee.

Most of the time I was at the other: Vanessa Bridge ( a lovely girl who died young, friend of Chris and Boo)Acoustic Marquee. All proceeds from here to British Heart Foundation.

This is Fiddler On The Hoof, Alias No 1 son Ade.

Friends, married couple Andy and Ally, brilliant singers.

Charity stalls set out under the sheltering trees, it really was hot. Pelsall Common is a lovely venue as you can see.

Boo doing her stewarding bit in her cowboy hat??

Robyn (Chris & Mitch’s) in auntie Boo’s hat chatting with Terra, Ally and Andy’s daughter in very fetching headgear.

Two young hooligans, Stevie and Aislinn, (Rebecca and Paul’s) displaying more fetching headgear.

Aislinn has found a dancing partner, Jake from her school. The pub in the background is The Railway Inn. I hope they made a good contribution to the charities as it was an alcohol free event and they surely benefited.

These are some of the very talented Btec pupils from Shelfield Community Academy.

This is Tony Porlocks finale where he called a lot of his friends on stage. Tony is sitting third from right, he’s a great musician. Paul, Boo’s husband is on the far left showing his knobbly knees, Ade, Chris and Boo scattered about.

A lot of my pics were no good as the sun was so bright.

August 6th was my granddaughter Robyns Birthday. She wanted a big family meal and that’s what she got, there were 13 of us. Fifteen if counting the dogs, just to make sure, not that I’m superstitious lol. We have to bring in a garden table as my dining table only seats eight.

Blowing out the candles

Big cuddle for glamorous Nanny

I have loads of pics , but I don’t want to bore you lol
