The civic society is, once again, sponsoring a week of community activities in Malvern. This is the 9th year and over that time more than £15k has been raised for local community groups.
The festival includes lots of music including a community choir concert, a jazz evening with the Severn Arts Youth Jazz Orchestra together with the Barcelona Youth Jazz Band as well as bands in the park. Lots of talks – the end of WW1 and Malvern’s musical history. Lots of heritage – explore Malvern – walks, open gardens and lots more.
Every so often, the Society organises a working party to clear some of the undergrowth in the Victorian Cemetery.
The principal work is removing ivy from the gravestones and disposing of the debris.
We will meet at the Cemetery Chapel at 9.30. Park at the Madresfield Road entrance.
Bring gloves and secateurs. Look forward to seeing you then.
Malvern in Bloom judging is on Thursday 27th June, so we want to have it spick and span by then.
