ANNUAL community festival Love Stourbridge has been rescheduled for August after organisers decided to postpone the event due to "deteriorating weather forecasts".

The free event, run by Chawn Hill Church and the other Stourbridge churches, had been due to take place in Mary Stevens Park, Norton, Stourbridge, on Saturday July 22 and Sunday July 23 but it has now been rescheduled for Saturday August 26.

Events and activities lined up include a free climbing wall, craft activities, fair games, kite making, sports, facepainting and hair braiding, live music and a community barbecue.
