Christmas Craft Fayre Success

On Saturday November 16th Wall Heath Community Association held it’s first Christmas Craft Fair at the Community Centre and what a success it was! Although an accurate count was not possible it is estimated that over seven hundred people attended. The majority of those who came along were from the village although the event also attracted visitors from the surrounding districts and beyond. Stallholders and visitors went away happy and enquiries have already been received for next year’s Fair.

A walk round Wall Heath event

A “walk round Wall Heath” was well received with tickets limited to twenty five to ensure that the walkers gained maximum input from the walk leader, John Sparry.

Commencing at the Community Centre John outlined the progress made by the Community Centre since it’s initial life in a couple of huts which had also provided accommodation for the Land Army Girls.

Proceeding across the playing field the walkers paused to cross High Street by the Wall Heath Inn , difficult to believe that less than sixty years ago steam trains passed over the A449 on the way to delivering coal to Ashwood Basin.

The basic history of St Andrew’s Church was imported before proceeding to the junction of The Parade with Foundry Road where we learned that Yew Tree Cottage was the first village school.

Along Foundry Road several landmarks of relevance were pointed out before turning into Dudley Road where John told us about the building of Grove Park and the village schools.

Walking down Enville Road we learned of the building of the Shopping Precinct and reaching Chapel Street the building used as a Chapel over a hundred years ago is still standing.

The many and varied attractions available at the long demolished Yew Tree, were a source of amazement.

Our walk concluded with tea and home made cakes, provided by members of the committee of the Community Association.

Craft Fair a Success

Another innovative move by the Community Association was to stage a Craft Fair after a lapse of more than ten years.

The event took place on Saturday 1 December 2018 and with twenty stalls displaying high quality home made merchandise there was much to grab the attention of those who attended and it is estimated that almost two hundred and fifty people took the advantage of being able to purchase Christmas gifts.

Children were not forgotten with a face painter and a magician on hand to entertain the many children who came along.
Plans are already in hand to make this successful enterprise an annual event.
