A lovely slice of village life
I spent saturday in the company of a set of happy villagers celebrating their Rose Day in Goostrey in Cheshire.
The day is all about celebration, of their young folk, of their community and of their dedication to keeping the village traditions alive and well. Everyone takes on a role to make sure the day ran smoothly and by golly it did just that. There was tug of war, greasy poles, tom-bolas, fair rides, coconut shy and cake and fun stalls for everyone.
There were many people wearing weird and wonderful outfits too.
There was some great dancing, all the way from Africa no less !
Competitions in categories of the best single rose, floral displays, (and a little display of my own !) More available here.
and my most favourite of all, the children’s competition to create monsters out of fruit… priceless !
Look at these, how wonderful are they ?
