The wait is nearly over – after a four-year absence the Spring into Summer Festival returns to Perry Common this weekend.
Perry Common will come alive on Saturday April 29 as local residents come together to enjoy community spirit at its finest.
This year’s event has a lot to live up to but promises to be one to revel in with a range of activities planned to occupy the crowds.
Highlights include a super slide, bouncy castle, donkey rides and a football cage.
There will also be a number of stalls manned by partner organisations like The Net Pentecostal Church, St Martin’s Church, The Friends of Witton Lakes and Boss Gardens.
Established in 2010, Spring into Summer has become a much-loved community celebration in Perry Common with the event regularly attracting hundreds of visitors.
Paul Tse, Flourishing Community Development Officer at Witton Lodge Community Association, has co-ordinated the 2023 version.
“Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Spring into Summer has been missing for four years but it is now back and we are expecting an eager and excited crowd for next weekend’s extravaganza,” he said.
“The event captures and celebrates the vibrant community spirit that exists in Perry Common.”
Spring into Summer 2023 takes place from 12-3pm on The Ring, Witton Lodge Road, Perry Common, B23 5JD.
