Fantastic New Year Celebrations in Birmingham’s Southside district this weekend. The High Sheriff was honoured to accept an invitation to celebrate in the Chung Ying Garden with Jeffrey Yap and his wife Sharon and Deputy Lieutenant Jenny Loynton. Incoming High Sheriff’s Keith Bradshaw and John Hudson also attended. Hosted by James Wong it was a big fund raising night with the dragons ‘eating’ envelopes of donations and a lively auction. Saturday’s rain held off for the main outdoor Sunday celebrations in Hurst Street, the Arcadian and the Hippodrome.
