Allesley Festival – Church and Community
The 43rd Allesley Festival culminated in the Allesley Festival Parade which traditionally sees friends, neighbours, families, the school and businesses celebrate through the Village. This year’s theme of fairy tales and nursery rhymes did the parable of the Lost Sheep not disappoint with excellently created floats from different sections of the community. All Saints’ Church’s theme was Little Bo Beep – a theme connected with the parable of the Lost Sheep – Luke 15: 3-7. The message being no matter how far we stray Jesus will always search for us, and once we are found there is great rejoicing!
Our float was filled with children dressed as sheep and with a Little Bo Beep. In addition, dotted throughout the streets, balloon sheep were scattered amongst the crowds. Our float came third and was presented with a rosette. Well done everybody!
