There was a great occasion at the weekend on the Booth Bed Lane Playing Field. The 6th annual Simon Weston Trophy Match resulted in a hard-fought 2-1 victory for the West of the village. I’m not sure it matters who won as, most importantly, £1130 was raised for the Remembering Nell Foundation from a wonderful community event. Well done all!
The organisers would like to pass on many thanks to all who attended.
Nell’s Spring Ball 30th March.…Tickets are still available for Nell’s Spring Ball 2019! This promises to be a fantastic evening, with a 3 course meal, bar, live music, raffle and auction! All raising money to help improve the lives and well being of young people in the North West 💕
Goostrey’s Amy Hext is arranging a concert in memory of her friend Nell. Amy is a member of the Lions Youth Brass Band and they have kindly offered their Awards Concert to Amy as a fundraiser for the Remembering Nell Foundation.
It is being held at St Michael’s, Middlewich – as there is enough space for three brass bands plus audience! (and the vicar is the father of the principal trombone!)
Cheshire East workers gave their own time today to install Nell’s bench, how kind. We hear on Friday June 8th there will be a short gathering at 6pm at Nell’s bench for anyone who would like to attend. 🐝All are welcome 🐝

Good news from Cheshire East. They have confirmed that Nell’s bench will be installed on Friday.
With the anniversary of the Manchester Arena atrocity coming up next week it is a pity that Cheshire East haven’t yet installed the village’s bench in memory of Goostrey’s Nell Jones.
The parish council are understandably frustrated that the Memorial Bench was delivered weeks ago but is still waiting to be fitted – despite numerous requests to CEC. They still hope that Nell’s bench will be fixed in place before the anniversary of her death on 22nd May. 🐝
