The St Kenelm’s Day celebration is a family event that we want everyone to enjoy in safety, please be aware of the following terms and conditions –
You may bring reasonable quantities of alcohol for personal consumption, however excessive amounts of alcohol will not be allowed into the event. For safety reasons please avoid bringing glassware, glass containers or glass bottles. No gazebos. Any form of drug, legal high or items deemed dangerous or offensive by the organisers are strictly prohibited. Parents and guardians are fully responsible for their children’s safety and behaviour and must maintain appropriate supervision of them at all times. No public parking will be available at the carpark or on surrounding roads. There is a zero tolerance policy towards any anti-social or aggressive behaviour. The organiser’s decision on all matters is final and we retain the right to bar entry to or remove people from the event. It is estimated the event will end by 10.45pm.
I am sorry to say that The Romsley and Hunnington Parish Show committee have taken the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 show that was due to take place in September. The safety of our volunteers and the general public has to come first and as such, we could not see how we could stage the show safely and without causing supporters undue worry. We greatly appreciate the support we have had in the past and hope we can rely on you in the future and we look forward to seeing you at the 2021 show.
Paul Cooke Chair of Romsley and Hunnington Show
The St Kenelms Day celebrations for 2019 were a great success with hundreds of people relaxing in the park listening to the fabulous music provided by the Bluebird Belles and Stourport on Severn Brass Band.
Thanks to all of the acts for helping to make it a great day assisted by Avion TSL supplying the PA and also Craft 17 for providing refreshments.

This is a photo of last Saturday’s New Year Parish Walk.
It was a really good walk with a record number of 37 participants.
The weather was kind to us and the preceding dry spell enabled us to complete the 4.25 mile walk over and around the Clent Hills relatively free of mud. Lots of chat all the way round and from comments afterwards everybody thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
Well, we struck lucky with the weather today didn’t we, dry and just a nice temperature.
Nineteen of us were able to make this year’s annual “out of parish walk” which was around the Lickeys and surrounding countryside.
I hope those who came found the look at the WW1 gun butts of interest, as well as the 14th century St Michael’s church, Bittell reservoir and steam pump house. I hope you all enjoyed the walk too of course, especially the lack of stiles!
Thanks for your company.
