AROUND 2,000 peo­ple en­joyed the mu­sic and sun­shine at the Colne Val­ley Mu­sic Fes­ti­val at Den­ham Coun­try Park on Sun­day.

Lo­cal bands such as Ask you Mum, The Stiles, Pig Earth, and Fire­horse, played to an en­thu­si­as­tic au­di­ence seated on straw bales in the park.

Den­ham Against HS2 set up a game where peo­ple threw bags of money into a white ele­phant, and Dirty Mavis sang a num­ber of protest songs.

It at­tracted lo­cal ex­hibitors such as the Buck­ing­hamshire Golf Club, and there was also wa­ter sav­ing ad­vice from Affin­ity Wa­ter, and lo­cal bee keep­ers and the RSPB were also there.

Red Squir­rel Brew­ing which has a store in Che­sham supplied the beers and peo­ple also en­joyed the freshly made piz­zas from a mo­bile pizza oven. For the chil­dren there were fair­ground at­trac­tions and crafts ar­ranged by Iver En­vi­ron­ment Cen­tre, along with river dip­ping and the pop­u­lar duck race.

Stewart Pomeroy from Ground­work South, the man­ag­ing agents for The Colne Val­ley Park, said: “It was great to see ev­ery­one en­joy­ing an af­ter­noon of en­ter­tain­ment in the sun­shine.”
