THE coming weekend is a milestone on the village of St Michael’s just outside Tenbury.

It will see another step towards ‘normality.’

Villagers will be opening their gardens over Saturday and Sunday for locals and visitors to enjoy.

There will be 15 gardens open between 12noon and 5pm on both days.

But this is not all.

The cost is £5 and a ticket can be used on either or both days.

People will also be able to see the latest improvements to the village hall.

Tenbury has a close knit community but activities have had to slow during the past 18 months because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

However, it being well things will start to open up again with the easing of restrictions.

The village runs a scheme to help people to keep an eye on each other and this has been even more important during the pandemic.

A series of activities are planned in the coming months.

After the open gardens there will be a ‘Beatle fest’ on Saturday, July 10.

This will be followed a week later by the official opening on Saturday, July 17 of the new and improved hall.

A quiz night is on the agenda for Saturday, September 17.

This marks a busy autumn with a variety evening to bring a laugh to the village on Saturday, October 16.

There will be a Ceilidh on Saturday, November 27.

Hopefully, Christmas will be as it used to be in December and a special evening is planned on Saturday, December 11. After a traditional Christmas meal, there will be a concert given by the Birmingham University singers.

In the same week on Thursday, December 16 and Friday, December 17 there will be ‘village singers’ concert.

The village hall will also be the venue for a walk on New Year’s Day 2022.

St Michael’s ecclesiastical parish has more than 160 houses covering the village of St Michael’s and the surrounding area.
