Macclesfield Express - - YOUR PICTURES -

OR­GAN­IS­ERS are keep­ing their fin­gers crossed for the re­turn of good weather in time for the an­nual Lan­g­ley Fete.

The mas­sive event, which at­tracts hun­dreds of rev­ellers, takes place on Sun­day, June 26.

This year Mac­cles­field band The Chi­nese Marbles will per­form, bring­ing their unique taste on soul, funk and rock to the stage for a party not to be missed.

Start­ing at 1pm on Lan­g­ley play­ing fields, the fete will boast a fan­tas­tic af­ter­noon of fun, en­ter­tain­ment and live mu­sic for both chil­dren and adults alike.

There will be chil­dren’s races and crafts, bouncy slide, co­conut shy, face paint­ing, tombola and a cricket com­pe­ti­tion as well as many stalls sell­ing every­thing from plants and herbs to vin­tage goods, books and toys.

The fa­mous Lan­g­ley duck races will be held all af­ter­noon on the banks of the River Bollin as well as a clas­sic car dis­play and the Fell Race, which will see com­peti­tors run­ning up and down Teggs Nose.

One of the fete high­lights is the ever pop­u­lar dog show.

With eight cat­e­gories in­clud­ing wag­gi­est tail, best res­cue, hand­somest dog, pret­ti­est bitch, best vet­eran, large, small and over­all cham­pion.

There will be plenty to eat and drink with a fan­tas­tic bar­be­cue, tea tent, ice creams and ev­ery­one’s favourite, the beer tent which will be of­fer­ing a great se­lec­tion of real ales.

The af­ter­noon’s en­ter­tain­ment will end on a spec­tac­u­lar high note with a mu­si­cal ex­trav­a­ganza fea­tur­ing melodic rock band Night Flight, djembe drum­ming group, Kon­taani and headlining will be The Chi­nese Marbles.

Tony Quinn, who or­gan­ises the event, said: “Last year’s fete was an out­stand­ing suc­cess with well over 1,000 peo­ple com­ing along to en­joy the af­ter­noon.

“It is an im­por­tant event for the vil­lage as all the pro­ceeds go to­wards the up­keep of our vil­lage hall plus a Christ­mas meal and cabaret evening which is held each year for all our older res­i­dents.”
