Firsfest 2017 was a great success enjoyed by everyone a few images from Saturday 19th August
“The Twelfth Firsfest Music Fayre was held on the 18th and 19th August in Firsdown. A careful selection of music was well received by an enthusiastic audience and included a variety of Bands some of whom have become popular regulars. The Friday weather started none too promising but in the end, both days stayed fine.
The Fayre was conceived by Graham Wright and the late Richard George as a means of bringing the community together in a village which is otherwise lacking facilities. A laudable target and one which has been well achieved in that many friendships have indeed been created. The provision of bar facilities, catering and car parking has been staffed by volunteers from Firsdown and surrounding areas. Lighting and Sound is in the hands of highly experienced personnel. The organisation of Firsfest has now come full circle in that the Chairman of the organising group is a member of the George family. 2018 beckons. “
