The Church Minshull Community Website

Residents, families and friends, turned out in droves on a glorious Saturday afternoon to enjoy races and the dancing. Kids raced egg & spoon, wanged wellies and enjoyed a Mad Hatter's tea party relay, whilst the adults had a tug o' war in a tribal, zealous version of White Rabbits versus March Hares — who won? ...everybody!... it was fantastic fun.
David Hughes and his team at the Badger Inn were wonderful in putting on a beer tent and a BBQ...mmmm! that chicken paella was amazing! This event was funded in part by a grant from the Big Lottery Fund — Awards for All, which allowed the equipment for the races and entertainment to be purchased. To see more photos please view the Madness Photos in the Galleries.
Kerry Bannon, Chair of the CM Vision events group has praised all the organisers (Madness Makers) and thanked them for their time, effort and support over the last few months, to make this day a complete success. She would also like to thank Cheshire East Council for their generous support for the event for the grant and loan of the safety barriers. Kerry has penned a open letter of thanks to the community, who turned out to engage in the fun, which can also be found on this page.
