Minshull Madness is approaching fast — Saturday 1st September 2018 is the date for your diaries!

To tie in with the theme of Minshull Madness, this year's August competition is to make a model/display based on characters, scenes or objects in "Alice in Wonderland".

You can construct any sort of model/display, large or small, that can stand at the front of your house, in the window or in the garden, during the last week of August. It can be made out of any type of material, including new or recycled items, flowers and plants.

There are two age groups:
Under 16
16 and over

Since I've lived here I've hunted for them diligently but with no...

It has felt like the longest summer ever already as I listen to the noise of the rain on our roof. The grass is still a dry shade of crunchy brown from the unbelievable Mediterranean weather conditions we have been having in this little corner of England. It is the hottest summer I can remember since I was a child, collecting water from stand pipes in the streets of Cardiff. Who could have...
