Heathfest back with a bang
Published on: 30 Jun 2015
BROMLEY Heath’s biggest community event –Heathfest – is back with a bang this year and is promising to be bigger and better than before.
Organisers of Heathfest – known fully as Bromley Heath Community Festival - have spent months planning the event to make sure there is something for everyone to enjoy, from the youngest member of the family to the eldest.
The festival, which attracts visitors in their droves, will boast live music and performances, stalls, local food and drinks, rides, games, face painting and children’s activities.
During the event, this year’s John Laurie award winners, Graeme Dundas and Bill Crocker, will be presented with their prizes.
Both Graeme and Bill were nominated by members of the public for their selfless acts of volunteering.
The popular festival took a break last year but organisers pledged it would come back with a vengeance in 2015.
Caroline King, one of the co-chairs of Heathfest, said: “We are really excited about this year’s festival. It’s a great way to bring the residents of Bromley Heath together while raising money for a local cause.
“All the volunteers of the committee have worked really hard to make it as exciting and fun as we can and we are looking forward to seeing everyone enjoy themselves.”
Also putting in an appearance will be Heathfest’s mascot, Bromley Bear. He will visit the pre-school tent so youngsters can come and say hello as well as meeting the rest of his fans around the site!
This year’s Heathfest takes place on Saturday July 11 from 1pm at Bromley Heath playing fields, just off Wedgewood Road. Programmes are now available. To find out more email firstname.lastname@example.org
