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.
