The Knutsford Hosts were honoured to have David Briggs, the Lord Lieutenant of Cheshire present Knutsford Hosts badges to the new hosts at our welcome event at the splendid Tabley House.
After the event David said:
“I am delighted to support Knutsford Hosts. For me this is an outstanding example of real community spirit. Local people do not give money but, often more importantly, they give of their time and their skill to help others. On Thursday evening I was so impressed as many local people agreed to either help to preserve the many treasures at Tabley Hall or to give of their time to improve the experience of visitors to the Hall.

“A huge THANK YOU to all the wonderful people who made our 2015 Open Day such a brilliant success! We do hope you enjoyed being involved? Your support is so much appreciated by everyone here at CAFT.
“We welcomed hundreds of guests along including our fantastic Patrons John and Mel Bishop, Jason and Catherine Manford, Lee and Jenny Boardman and also special guest John Thomson, along with mascots from MUFC, MCFC!
“A dry and warm day meant that all the activities, stands and entertainment could proceed as planned. So many companies, organisations and individuals lent their time to help make the event possible – donating financial and in-kind support, manning a stand, running an activity, helping with the difficult task of traffic control and parking, cooking on the BBQ etc. etc. etc.! It really was the perfect example of a giant team effort!
“A staggering £5500 was raised, which is an amazing result and will help so much with our work with children in need.”

Knutsford Hosts supported the Children’s Adventure Farm Trust (CAFT) by running the Tea Tent at their annual Open Day. We were very well looked after by CAFT and all the volunteers had a great afternoon selling gallons of tea and mountains of cake whilst bumping into quite a few celebrities!
