High Legh was really buzzing over the weekend of 13th/14th May - over 1100 people were out exploring all the fantastic activities that go on in our village. Did you take part in making the big decision on which scarecrows would win your votes? 58 scarecrows were on show!!!
Thank you to everyone who took part and contributed to a High Legh enjoyable event.
Some quotes from contributors:
"There was a great buzz around the Big Red Bus stop"
"Wonderful Village Event"
"A good number of people had not realised exactly where we are located"
"We had lots of visitors and expect that some will become regulars - Great publicity for us"
"We had a wonderful time with all the family enjoying the day"
"I have always wondered what St Mary's Chapel was like"
"Most sucessful weekend"
"Lovely to listen to the music and see the happy faces"
"The new Fire Safety place looks really interesting"
"It was great to chat to people from other organisations"
"Great that so many residents and businesses got behind the event"
And finally....many congratulations to all the voluntary groups who fed and watered the multitudes. The PTA BBQ on the Saturday seemed to be continuously on the go - sending out a delicious aroma wafting across West Lane, Strawberries were enjoyed at the Tennis Club (just practising for Wimbledon), St Johns offered their usual wonderful hospitality, Brownies broke all records for the quantity of Sunday Teas they served - hundreds of visitors young and old, enjoyed sandwiches and cakes in the Sunday sunshine.
For artistic creativity forget the Venice Biennale - you needed to see the fab range of entries in the High Legh Big Weekend. There were 58 entries in the competition and the creations that ranged from the picturesque to the fantastical. The voters have spoken, and the results for each category are:
ET By Nicola Watson
Cyclist by Lynn Moseley
The Spider you can see in the dark by John Cope
Fairyland by Joe and Sue Edwards
Congratulations to everyone who took part and thank you to all our sponsors.
As we head towards the summer, the drought of April and May has been broken. The photo shows the Bath Pool off Wrenshot Lane just a few weeks ago. Now the trees are covered in fresh green leaves and the hedgerows are white with blossom. .
