We expected the fete to be cancelled because of the changeable weather on the day but no, the place was a throng of bodies from early on sampling all of the stalls and attractions. The food and drink on sale was outstanding and the arena had something going on all the time. Great seeing the birds of prey up close and in action. The inflatable section was great for the children. More more more……..
What an absolutely fantastic fete despite the weather not playing ball. Full appreciation to all the volunteers who worked so hard made it all possible and such an enjoyable day to remember

Well done Cradley and Storridge you have done it again. The Jubilee revived memories of the Crowns of Cradley and the Three Villages festival which harnessed the talent from those who live here

TALKING POINT

Being new comers to the village we didn’t know what to expect but were stunned by the layout and variety and shear scope of offerings of the fete. We know we are living where community still has meaning. We made the right decision to live here. Kids agree

We went to the bonfire( sorry beacon), the fete and also the jubilee supper in Storridge village hall and had a great time. All well organised and a joy. We were looking forward to the picnic but the weather was against us.- More events like these please
What a beacon it could be seen from miles around and I couldn’t see one bigger anywhere. How the hell does this small village get so much together in such a short time so successfully? Exceptional Fete
We had so many comments regarding the Jubilee celebrations that we cannot unfortunately print them all here but thank you for all those who commented
Everyone involved in organising and holding the events were volunteers from the community. People just like yourselves who willingly gave their time and talents. They took on a lot of hard work to ensure that these many events went off as hitch free as possible. They aren’t super hero’s just people who want to put something back into their community which they are part of. Anyone can do it and there are many organisations in and around the villages who are ready to welcome new blood to strengthen the community. REMEMBER, IT IS YOUR COMMUNITY- YOU MAKE IT OR YOU BREAK IT!
