What an amazing week it has been, though it hardly seems just a week has gone by, but a busy one it has been.
The program of events is certainly hotting up for Party in the Park, which will be held in August.
There was certainly progress at the meeting I attended on Tuesday afternoon.
At Cheadle’s Cricket Club on Thursday I had the honour of being part of the Sports Awards Evening and presented some Awards. Well Done to everyone who received awards. It was a great evening with a lovely buffet.
The Cheadle Arts Festival had a great start on Saturday, with CRE-8 Day.
It was wonderful to see so many different crafts being demonstrated.
After a few words of welcome I declared the Arts Festival officially open.
Throughout the morning I chatted to the many stall holders there.
The Community Band played in the Oakley Room, where they could be heard in the hall.
It was a pleasure to hear them play. Refreshments were also provided in the Oakley Room with the proceeds being donated to Donna Louise. Cheadle Fairtrade Group were also present. In the middle of all the CRE-8 days events, I popped over to surprise a young lady on her 80th birthday at The Raddle in Hollington.
It was a treat to surprise Pauline with a bouquet of flowers and a card and to wish her Happy Birthday, before leaving her to tuck into a lovely meal with all of her family around her.
It was back to the Guild Hall in the evening for an excellent night of Jazz.
I didn’t manage to stay until the end as it was another busy day again on Sunday, but the guys certainly played well and what energy. I was back at the Guild Hall on Sunday afternoon for the tea dance.
In the morning I visited the New Life Centre, where the Worship was accompanied with a very good selection of breakfast goodies.
In the afternoon my wife laughed at my attempt of dancing, but we had a go.
While we enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea, we watched a flower demonstration by Sheila Jones. These were later raffled off along with other prizes and we even won a boxed flower display in the raffle. Later on Sunday evening my daughter and her partner Scot and little Emrys came for tea.
