Minshull Madness was hailed another great success, despite the rain interruption for 20 minutes. Approximately, 180 people attended the event to join in the family fun and engage in the community spirit of Church Minshull.
The Badger Inn, once again provided great support with arranging the marquees, a bar, a BBQ and a fantastic Hog Roast which got stripped to the bone (even the ears were given to some lucky dogs).
Something different this year, was provided by South Cheshire College, who, on learning of the event, offered up the loan of a Chinese Dragon, which kicked off the proceeding and the Church Minshull, Community Led Plan, was also launched at this event (but look for more on this in another article).
So with the organisers dressed in Wonderland costumes and the volunteers (Madness Makers) sporting Cheshire cat t-shirts, the event was started by the Queen of Hearts.
The Egg & Spoon, running races, three-legged races, and wellie-whanging events were all completed, before the rain stopped play, however, around about this time Sarah showed up and offered to do face painting for the kids, which was a real bonus. Soon after it brightened up and play resumed with the much anticipated tug-o-war categories, where White Rabbits competed against Mad Hatters...who won overall?....everybody did, it was a great family occasion and the rain did little to dampen people's spirits.
