VE Day cel­e­bra­tions get in swing

Macclesfield Express - - ELECTIONS ROUND-UP -

YOUNG and old cel­e­brated the an­niver­sary of VE Day.

Cheshire Street­wise hosted a tea dance at Elim Chris­tian Life Cen­tre Church on Par­son­age Street.

There was fancy dress from the era, cakes and clas­sic dances.

There was also some­thing for the chil­dren with a craft ta­ble where they made wind­mills and pa­per bag pup­pets.

Maggie Fal­coner, from Cheshire Street­wise, who helped Elim and Cheshire East Coun­cil or­gan­ise the event, said: “We had a great time. Some peo­ple got dressed up in style, Shirley Ma­cAl­is­ter with the big hat and Kath and Flare Mottram dressed as clean­ers with pre­tend cig­a­rettes and curlers in. There were some amaz­ing cakes, scones and sand­wiches to share.

“We had peo­ple up and danc­ing to waltzes and war time mu­sic as well as hav­ing kids ac­tiv­i­ties.”

Dozens of res­i­dents in Hurds­field also turned out at Ban­bury Park for their own VE cel­e­bra­tions.

The event was at­tended by David Rut­ley and Com­bat, a men­tal health char­ity for vet­er­ans.
