Villagers ready for annual show

PREPARATIONS were under way this week for the annual Marehay show.

The show will be held on Saturday, September 3, from noon until 5pm at Marehay Recreation Ground and also at Marehay Chapel in Warmwells Lane in the village.

The show will be raising funds for Treetops Hospice in Risley.

The event boasts a horticultural event with fruit, vegetables and home produce. There will also be handicrafts on offer for visitors to view at both sites.

Villagers have also been getting into the spirit of things by creating scarecrows, which are on display outside homes in the area.

Youngsters too can get in on the act in a fancy-dress event.

The show will also feature games, a dog show, live music and folk dancing.
