BevFest sees off summer with a swing

Bevendean families said a final farewell to the hot summer at a fun-filled festival.
More than 500 people enjoyed fun in the sun at BevFest 2013, held in Bevendean on Saturday.
Budding strongmen enjoyed a tug of war, children played on a bouncy castle and hungry visitors tucked into a barbecue.
Live bands played all day, with the winners of the Bevendean’s Got Talent show topping the bill.
More music was provided by a band made up of adults with learning difficulties, organised by the charity Spiral.
In the afternoon, open-mouthed children watched as a group of free runners showed off their moves by leaping and flipping over school gym equipment.
The festivities then carried on long into the evening, although some revellers were forced to bring blankets to keep warm.
Kathy Strulo, chairman of Friends of BevFest, said everyone involved had a “fantastic time” – but revealed the festival was very nearly cancelled at the last minute.
She said: “We had problems with the stage and the whole thing very nearly didn’t happen, but we got it sorted in the end.
“We were so glad the weather held out for us, and the whole day was just a huge success.
“I think it went so well because it was such a safe atmosphere. Parents could just let their kids run off and play because we had good security. It all just felt really free.”
