Volunteers needed at a 3 day festival spectacular in Palfrey Park,Walsall.
It’s that time of the year again & planning for this year’s brilliant Caldmore Village Festival & The Walsall Mela is in full swing. The amazing Caldmore Village Festival & the fantastic Walsall Mela are in their fourth year & getting bigger every year. Do you want to be part of the festival/mela organising team, would you like to meet some of the stars?
We need volunteers to work in shifts for over the 3 day period of the festival, we will provide refreshments and a brilliant playful atmosphere, we need helpful volunteers to monitor the site and make sure all who attend have the best time!
Jobs include general park and car park stewards, Kids entertainment stewards, Information stewards, Noise patrol stewards, festival stewards, gate stewards and litter pickers, 5-a-side football stewards.
Last year we had over 100 volunteers who had a great time enjoying the festivities at our festival & mela, many bands and choirs, children, athletes and also local dancers took part, we had over 20,000 visitors. It was a multicultural splash!
This year the fantastic Walsall Mela will take place at Palfrey Park again with the amazing turnout last year, we need volunteers to help with most of the above duties listed. Kabbadi, Stonelifting and volleyball as well as young people’s sports tasters will be some of the sports seen. The Walsall Mela will be held on the 7thof July this year.
If you want to help and get involved with either event please get in touch with our volunteer co-ordinator Steve Breeze on 07970856148 or e-mail him email@example.com

Bath Street Centre was the focus for proceedings for the Festival goers on Monday night where Oddments Theatre Co performed to a full house in the first of a series of evening events and performances leading up to Caldmore Village Festival on Bank holiday weekend.
On Friday 25th May 120 children from our local primary schools, Whitehall and Caldmore, paraded to Caldmore Green to mark the opening of the Caldmore Festival season. This parade is now becoming something of a tradition after just a few years and the children had a chance to show off the costumes and trolleys they had been decorating in the workshops we took to their schools. They were greeted by our regular samba band, Glamba, who entertained the children, parents and passers by for an hour of lively music and a mini parade around the Green.
Over 30 volunteers came to support the latest Dig It day on Saturday the 26th of May in the Caldmore Community Garden. Greeted by sunshine and wall to wall blue skies the enthusiastic diggers celebrated their efforts by finishing the preparation on one of the raised beds and planting the very first young plants of the new garden. If you want to come and look over the garden and to find out more, the garden will be open to all too wander around on Monday June 4th during the festival. We hope to see you then!
