VILLAGE MILLENNIUM GREEN PUT TO FABULOUS USE
On the 18th August the weather stayed fine which was a bonus as “Angelfest” was held on Kingsland Millennium Green. The Music, Craft and Cider Festival certainly lived up to its billing with a variety of stalls lining the Green selling their goods. There was a variety of foods to be experienced throughout the day with The Angel Inn (who kindly sponsored the event) providing a bar. Six live bands generously kept the crowds entertained through the day with a variety of music to suit all tastes. Entry to the Green was free, however, a collection was made at the gate which resulted in the fantastic sum of £822.06 being raised which was divided between Midlands Air Ambulance and the Millennium Green to help with its upkeep.
A big “shout out” must go to all those who helped on the day along with people who generously lent equipment etc to enable things to run smoothly. There are far too many people to thank here but they have all received letters acknowledging their participation.
It was great to see so many local people in attendance and for The Green to be the “social hub” of the village for the day. For those of you who don’t know the Green was originally purchased by Kingsland residents to save it from being developed for housing and to provide an informal area for relaxation, recreation and a wildlife haven for the village centre.
It is hoped that “Angelfest” will become an annual event with the 17th August, 2019 being pencilled in for next year!
Hope you enjoyed the day
