We have been supporting the local churches and chapels in readiness for their Stitches and Stems weekend; another huge community event organised by Alison Long with the aim, this time, of bringing the local churches together.

An army of knitters and sewers from around the locality including our very own Debbie Rowlands, PCSO Sharon Jones and Miss Pitchford's mum have been tirelessly knitting squares over the past year and in more recent months starting to create characters, animals, flowers, structures to be used to create amazing biblical scenes on display across the locality.

Our wonderful tiger, will be on show at Aston Chapel as part of their huge Noah's Ark scene along with a fantastic 'Elmer the elephant' made by pupils at Brine Leas School, a fantastic giraffe, zebras, tortoises and pigs. At one point, someone asked if we were making a fox, so we're really pleased it has turned out as a recognisable tiger!

This community event is not just for church goers but an open opportunity for everyone to see the creative genius of lots of local people, not only in knitting and sewing but creating sculptures and also flower arranging.

It's an opportunity, like Fun in a Field for a Fiver, to spend time as a family visiting the different churches and chapels to look at the wonderful scenes, for the children to take part in activities and buy refreshments on route BBQ, salads, cakes, teas and coffees.

The following churches and chapels are involved:
Wrenbury St Margaret's
Aston Chapel
Baddiley Chapel
Baddiley Church
Broomhall and Sound Chapel
Burleydam Church

The event starts today, Saturday, from 10am — 5pm. It runs tomorrow from 1pm — 5pm and again on Monday
Adults: £6 passport for entry; children free.

Something to enjoy over the weekend!
