Snakes and Spiders Invade Garden Party
Chelford Tenants & Residents Association recently held their Summer Garden Party at the Hall at Marthall attracting large numbers of the local community to a wonderful sunny day. Tenants and residents also attended from Bollington, Gawsworth, Knutsford, Poynton, Lower Withington and the wider community.
The event featured the usual stalls such as Bric a Brac, Home made cakes and preserves, jewellery tree, home made cards, name the doll and of course the raffle. The Association's Community Garden Project had many plants on sale which they had raised from seed and plug plants grown by volunteers, monies raised from this is reinvested to provide more communal plantings to enhance our local neighbourhood. The Association also holds Spring and Autumn Plant Sales from their community greenhouse.
Children were catered for by bouncy balloons and bubble wands and of course ice creams with yummy toppings!
A superb afternoon tea was served at the event which was prepared by and served by the volunteers of the Association.
A great attraction was "Nesta's Ark" which is a mobile educational zoo operated by an ex teacher. Nesta brought along a selection of creatures including giant tortoise, snakes, tarantulas, chameleons and geckos', albino hedgehog, frog and a dog! For those brave enough there was the opportunity to handle the animals and creatures. The attraction proved a real hit with adults and children alike and even helped remove some of the phobias that people have with snakes and spiders!
Chelford Tenants & Residents Association is a voluntary not for profit organisation who works to improve the lives of local people and create a more vibrant local community. It is mainly involved with activities with older persons but as Mike Jehan, Chair said "This year we wanted to attract more younger people to our event and Nestas Ark certainly achieved this"
Other activities which the Association has successfully started include a Community Garden Project, Computer Club and Age UK Exercise Classes.
