The weather failed to put a dampener on the Mile Oak and Fazeley Festival as hundreds turned out to enjoy the event.

Attractions such as a surf simulator, hook-a-duck and bouncing castles ensured the wet weather didn’t turn the annual event into a washout.

Visitors also enjoyed live music, dance performances from Mazeley Youth Group and Burntwood Street Cheer, DJ workshops, browsing craft stalls, and taking part in circus skills workshops, while a  football tournament was won by St John’s (Under 10s) and Fazeley Swifts (Under 13s).

Councillor Helen Fisher, Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet Member for Community, said:

“It was such a shame that it rained on and off throughout the day. However, it did not stop lots of people from enjoying this special community festival. Many thanks must go to all the volunteers who generously gave up their time and energy to help stage this event.”

The event raised more than £1,000 which will be donated to local groups.
