The Kirkby Festival

Margaret selling cakes The Festival Village

Once again the local community came together on a bright summer day for a festival of local talent and service. The Kirkby Festival took place on Saturday 14th July on the green connected to St Chad’s Church and demonstrated the fantastic community spirit that makes Kirkby the place it is. Local churches, community organisations and some public service providers pulled together to lay on a fantastic day.  Over 4000 residents are thought to have attended, not put off by the early morning rain that soon gave way to sunshine.

Special thanks to John, Margie, Jean, Julie, Lisa and Pauline.
