Why not take your mind off the current unseasonal weather with a sneak preview of what is in store for the 2012 Crosspool Festival?
This year’s festival runs 7-15 July. The programme will kick off with Crosspool Open Gardens on Saturday 7 July and it is hoped to repeat the street market and Crosspool’s Got Talent evening.
Plans are also underway for the creation of a well dressing and for Olympics-themed and musical events and there will be a summer fayre on Coldwell Lane on Saturday 14 July.
The local churches will be joining together for a closing services on Lydgate Green on Sunday 15 July, complete with brass band.
