Local solicitors join street festivities

Bosses at the Hive in Shrewsbury have today announced the kind support of neighbouring business and solicitors practice Wace Morgan. The leading legal team at Wace Morgan have pledged financial support towards the charity event in May, which will be taking place on Belmont.

This year's event follows on from the successes of events held over the last 2 years, which have seen hundreds of people of all ages join forces in celebration for a good old-fashioned knees-up. A whole host of county businesses and organisations haver chosen to make the most of community spirit this year, with those supporting the day already including Severnside Housing, Eat-up, Battlefield Printing Group and the Shrewsbury Town Centre Residents Association amongst many others.

On May 6 between 2pm and 6pm, the Hive will be hosting the third street festival, building on the popularity of the previous two years. There will be live performances from local musicians, creative workshops for young people and families, street performers, a Henna artist, lots of creative activities, many stalls, Taiko drumming, arts and crafts, a DJ and even a bag-piper.

Shropshire Cat Rescue will be making an appearance with a very special guest too - and other local traders involved include Bright Owls, Salop Medical Services, Iddys Ices, DASH Disability Arts, We Are Frostfire and Hennacat. There will also be lots of stalls for visitors to browse in a mini-Bazaar, showcasing the best of local crafts and products.

Habib Malik-Mansell of the Hive said "Preparations are in full swing and we are really looking forward to this year's event. We aim to provide a fun day for the local community and people of all ages, so I urge people to come along on the bank-holiday Monday and see what's on offer!" He added "We're grateful to the team at Wace Morgan following their support of the event and our continued partnership with them as a neighbouring business".

Slugworthes Candy, Severn Magazine, Jim Hawkins and Chris the Piper will also be taking part in the day on Monday May 6 and the event is supported in part by Shropshire Council through Local Joint Committee funding.
