Following last month’s news that the annual Earlsdon Festival would not take place this year because of a lack of volunteers, ECHO is pleased to report that the popular event is now back on.

Members of Rotary Club of Coventry Phoenix will now work with the Festival Committee to allow the May Day event to go ahead. There will also be a programme of music and arts fringe events during April and May, as in previous years.

More details will be in the February issue of ECHO, which will be in the shops by Saturday 30 January.
