Rush­cart on pa­rade

Rochdale Observer - - YOUR PICTURES -

HERE’S a chance to see some more great pic­tures from Sun­day’s Whitworth rush­cart pro­ces­sion.

More than 600 hardy souls braved the rain to watch the tra­di­tional pa­rade through the cen­tre of the town.

Mor­ris troupes in­clud­ing the Bri­tan­nia Co­conut­ters and Whitworth Mor­ris Men per­formed as the rush­cart, decked out in heather picked from the moors around the town, was led through the streets.

There was also an arts and craft fair in the River­side and rides, face paint­ing and other en­ter­tain­ment.

●●Thanks to Kerry Tul­ley for the pic­tures.
