Mil­len­nium green gears up for fun fete

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

HENBURY’S mil­len­nium green will be trans­formed for the vil­lage’s an­nual fete.

The fun fete – which has been run­ning since the venue was es­tab­lished in 2000 – will take place on Satur­day, June 11.

It will in­clude all the usual stalls and games, in­clud­ing fer­ret rac­ing, archery, and may­pole dancing with chil­dren from Whirley Pri­mary School.

A jazz band will pro­vide the mu­si­cal ac­com­pa­ni­ment for the af­ter­noon and there will also be a cake com­pe­ti­tion run by Henbury WI with the Queen’s 90th birth­day as its theme.

The event runs from 2pm un­til 4.30pm.

En­trance costs £2 for adults and is free for un­der 14s.

Ann Cousins, chair of Henbury Events Com­mit­tee, said the event has grown each year since the farmer’s field at the cen­tre of the vil­lage was trans­formed into a com­mu­nity space.

She said: “It will have all the usual stalls and many games, in­clud­ing some new ones like ‘guess the amount of al­co­hol units in a wheel­bar­row’.

“There will be lots go­ing on. Money raised will go to­wards the up­keep of the vil­lage and ameni­ties.”
