On 18th May Freemantle will have its first big community festival in years. A lot of hard work from local residents is going into putting on a really fun day. Freemantle and Shirley Ward councillors are going and if people want to raise any local issues with us we will be glad to help.
Below is a message from the festival organisers:
There will be dancing, bands, swimming, bouncy castles and giant inflatables, local food, drinks, information tents, local radio DJs, Scout Movement, Guide Movement, Southampton Mayor, tattoos, messy play, duck pond, environmental and recycling, hog-roast, celidh, herbs, African drumming, face painting, circus skills, raffle, and many, many more things to do on the day. Admission is free.Many local businesses are being generous in providing donations for the event. The festival team are currently collecting prizes for what promises to be a bonanza raffle. It is not too late to get involved with the festival and make your contribution. We are keen to hear from individuals who would like to help on the day, or could distribute publicity material in advance.
The Festival is supported by K2, SCC, St Marks School, Friends of The Field, YMCA and GMB.
