WHAT a wonderfully creative community we live in.

May bank holiday weekend saw local people decorate more than 40 of the springs and spouts around the hills for the annual well dressing, the magical May Day donkey procession with its gorgeous, fairytale costumes and another smile-raising yarn bombing in the town centre.

And then the town's retailers have delighted us with their storybook-inspired floral window displays.

All this, plus Dennis Neale's quirky, enchanting puppetry at the Theatre of Small Convenience, Herdi Ali Kardi's charming miniature stone village in West Malvern and the great graffiti pictures of Elgar on Belle Vue Terrace.

I couldn't think of a more inspiring place to bring up my son.
