Lions Fair is a roaring success

KNUTSFORD Lions have thanked everyone for supporting ‘a wonderful day’ on Bank Holiday Monday.

The club staged its annual fair on the Heath, which once again proved a great success.

There were donkey rides, games, face painting, a bouncy castle, trampolines and roundabouts for the children, welly throwing, dog competitions, music from Redwing, barrel organs, owls from Lower Moss Wood, charity stalls and food and drink.

Special attractions were a fire engine and other displays by Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service and the Embassy Bus.

The bus offers overnight accommodation for 14 homeless people from the streets of Manchester, with many people taking the opportunity to look inside the bus.

Lydia Kennedy, who ran the dog competitions, thanked new town mayor Cllr Andrew Malloy and his family, along with Royal May Queen Ciara York, for judging the annual dog show.

Thirty dogs entered this year for The Prettiest Pooch, The Dog with the Waggiest Tail and The Dog most like its Owner.

Fair organiser Clive Heath said: “It was another wonderful day on Knutsford Heath.

“Thanks to everyone who supported on the day – Scouts, Knutsford Hosts, First Responders and many others who helped raise much-needed funding for our community.

“Special thanks to Cllr Andrew Malloy and Ciara York for giving their time to walk around the stalls and talk to the stallholders.”
