I can’t believe it has taken me this long to get back into organizing events. I gave it up when we moved house and my son was born. But two years later I am back.
Lower Broadheath is the birthplace of Sir Edward Elgar (the composer guy) and is a wonderfully peaceful and pleasant village. It boasts two pubs, a handful of farms and, rather interesting, not one, not two, but absolutely zero local shops. Wild huh!?!
We decided to do something fun for the village and have organised a craft fayre at the village hall that we hope you will fancy coming along to. There will be over a dozen stalls selling all manner of crafty and homemade items, tea, coffee, cake, childrens play area outside AND live music from Glam Sparrow, Paul Jeffery and Sarah B. There will also be opportunities to try some of the crafts for yourself.
We are really looking forward to hosting this event and hope you can join us.

When ‘The Big Book of Worcester Who’s Who’ is written (you never know, it might one day) I hope the authors will find it in their hearts to include the following as a lasting reminder of a small town boy who dared to dream.
“In 2007 I had a dream. A dream that would bring musicians, venues, music lovers and the general public together in a festival of love, appreciation and enjoyment of live music whilst helping those less fortunate than ourselves. This dream was a dream I dreamt and foolishly tried to make it reality. And a reality it became, born with the co-operation of like-minded people my dream was fulfilled and I could live my life knowing that I had achieved something, and I saw that it was good.”
That is what I hope they’ll print.
In reality I probably won’t get a mention or possibly, if I’m lucky, they’ll write
“Chris Bennion, nice guy, put on a few gigs, called it Worcester Music Festival and then gave up.”
Here’s a sentence that not many people can say. “I have a job that I enjoy.”
Yes, you heard right. I actually enjoy my job. Okay so there are days when I could quite happily walk out, catch a bus to the coast and stare into nothingness and forget about work for month, but doesn’t everyone and there are of course times that I have not enjoyed work. Things may have gone wrong or some people may have rubbed me the wrong way, but the fact remains, I do enjoy my job. Read the rest of this entry »
So, who knows exactly what will happen if we leave the EU?
Not long now until the big decision. One that could change our very way of life. A choice that if we make the wrong one could disrupt our way of living, cost us millions of pounds in lost business, result in the possible outbreak of World War 3 and begin the ultimate downfall of a once great country.
Or everything could stay exactly the same, or get slightly better or maybe slightly worse.
There are always at least two sides to an argument. Read the rest of this entry »
PCC HUSTINGS AT THE CAP N GOWN, WORCESTER.
Imagine a job that you had to convince the public that you are the right man (or woman) to do the job for the next 3 (or maybe 6 if they do well) years. And imagine if you had to meet some of the public to convince them you were the best candidate… in a pub
Well, the police and crime commissionaire for Worcestershire job is up for grabs and 6 people have stepped into the ring ready to battle it out.
