The Scarecrow Festival, on now, ends with the judging and entertainment in Bramhall Village on 14th September. There will be a free trail for the kids and their mums and dads with a prize family goody bag for the first correct answer drawn. The Tour of Britain cycle race will be passing right through the centre of Bramhall – so two reasons to be there!

Time to get Creative! Why not join the fun and enter our ‘Back in Time’ themed Scarecrow Festival and have a chance to win our £100 first prize. See how to enter here

Fri 23 August – A group of us rambled from Marple to Chadkirk and back via the Marple Aqueduct.

Wed 21 August – Emeritus Professor of Astronomy at Manchester, Ian Morison, gave a fantastic talk on the possibilities of life outside Earth. Of course nobody knows but on balance single cell life is probable, but humans are at least special and maybe unique. Fascinating stuff from a remarkable man.

Wed 14th August – Crown Green Bowling. We had a great time bowling but nobody took a photo! So here we are enjoying a meal at the club house afterwards.

Wed 7th August – Committees. We spent the evening planning programmes for the coming months. In particular the Scarecrow Festival. Immediately before the meeting a group of 10 of us visited Swanbourne Gardens, a respite home for children with complex needs, where we recently provided £2,500 worth of sensory play equipment.

Wed 24th July – Martin Byrne gave a really good talk showing how just 4 chords cover a fantastic range of songs. He also used music to illustrate good practise in business.

Wed 10th July Fun and Games Evening

Wed 3rd July – Outgoing President Steve handed over to President Michael
