We attended the Barnaby Festival volunteers meeting at the Bate Hall on Wednesday night. The room was packed ( standing room only) with a lovely divese range of Macc folk. The common thread being they had loved the colour , culture and vitality that Barnaby brought to town last year and they want to help it happen again this year. Similar to the vision of makeitmacclesfield really, it proves good things need pushing along by everyone not just a few. Its all our responsibility to roll our sleeves up and do what we can if we want to live in a thriving community. Even a few hours helping on the Barnaby weeknd 17-19 June would be hugely appreciated. Contact Barnaby at firstname.lastname@example.org and check out www.barnabyfestival.org.uk. Oh and its a great way to meet some very nice people too.
