    Delamere Forest

    Forestry England celebrate 25 years of The Gruffalo with an exciting forest adventure.

    Forestry England’s Delamere Forest is thrilled to announce a year-long celebratory trail launching on 24th January, to mark the 25th anniversary of the award-winning picture book, “The Gruffalo”.

    Since 2014, the collaboration between Magic Light Pictures and Forestry England has enchanted families in England, immersing them in the magical world of the Gruffalo within the nation’s deep dark woods.

    To mark this remarkable milestone, Delamere Forest is inviting families from across England to join in the festivities and celebrate the Gruffalo’s 25th birthday on an exciting new trail experience.

    The Gruffalo’s 25th birthday trail is going to be a big party in the forest! As part of the adventure, families will be encouraged to work together to search for missing party items whilst enjoying fun and games along the trail. Participants will also learn about the intricate ways plants and animals look after each other.

    Available at 26 forest sites from 24th January, the trails will boast five large activity panels, two of which will include interactive elements. In addition, visitors can expect 15 smaller spotter panels, where they can search for missing party items. Five rubbing stations will also be scattered along the trail, adding an artistic touch to the adventure.

    For those looking to enhance their experience, an accompanying trail pack will be available to buy on-site for just £4. These will include a festive party headband to get you into the party spirit, an activity leaflet for curious minds, stickers, pencils and crayons to get creative, and a woven Gruffalo sew-on patch as a cherished keepsake.

    This fantastic celebratory trail is set to captivate Gruffalo fans of all ages, offering a memorable and educational experience amidst the beauty of our fabulous forests. Mark your calendars for 2024, as the Gruffalo’s 25th birthday promises to be an adventure you won’t want to miss.

    Gawsworth Scout Hall, 20 Church Lane, Gawsworth, Macclesfield SK11 9QY

    Out of the acclaimed folk band, Magna Carta, a new duo has been born.

    Ken Nicol and violinist Wendy Ross now combine their talents in a tour-de-force of music, song, storytelling and even some comedy.

    Ken and Wendy will be live on stage at Gawsworth Scout Hall, on Friday 26th July, in a concert to raise funds for The Gawsworth Hub*.

    Ken, whose pedigree includes spells with Steeleye Span, Al Stewart and The Albion Band, is considered one of the UK’s top guitarists.

    Wendy, was classically trained and experienced a wide spectrum of musical genres working with touring bands and philharmonic orchestras before joining Magna Carta.

    Acoustic Magazine said: “The musicianship is staggering, seldom are the compositions less than inspired.”

    Living Tradition wrote: “Rollercoasters of musical virtuosity that spellbind.”

    And legendary folk artist Ralph McTell said to expect: “Humour, great guitar skill and the right drop of humility, and a passion for right, proper, good music.”

    Licensed bar. Tickets £12 can be obtained from Gawsworth Hub.

    *Gawsworth Hub comprises a shop and deli, café and meeting place, run by volunteers for the benefit of the Gawsworth community. Tickets can be obtained from The Hub, 2-4 Longbutts Lane

    Local disc jockey, Chris Marshall Booth, is hosting an ‘Old School Disco’ night, raising funds for the breast screening unit at Macclesfield Hospital. 

    Monies raised from the event will support former patient Gena Moors’ cause, to say thank you to the unit she received treatment from, for breast cancer in 2020.

    Married with two children, Gena, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2020, undergoing a lumpectomy, before receiving chemotherapy at Macclesfield Hospital.

    After hosting her own Splash of Pink Breast Cancer Ball last year, where Chris DJ.’d, she’s raised over £24,000.

    Gena said: “I was absolutely overwhelmed when Chris contacted me to go through his idea of a fun disco night. It will be an incredible night of 70’s, 80’s and 90’s classics – a ‘dance like no-one’ is watching kind of night!

    “Chris is donating funds from the night to the Splash of Pink fund and with this money, I am getting closer to my target of £50,000 – which is amazing. The kindness and generosity of people I have met along the way is truly incredible.”

    The event, which is taking place at Congleton Town Hall on Saturday 17th August, will feature music from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s with tickets just £12 each.

    Chris said, “Lots of people have asked me to do a disco for over 40’s sort of folks with a bit of fun, why not, sort of wedding without a bride and groom, so I said I’ll try it and Splash of Pink is right up there on the good cause list, so I asked Gena if she would like to receive the profits and she jumped at it, and is very enthusiastic”.

    Gena is organising her next event, Splash of Pink does Vegas, on Saturday 21st September 2024 at Shrigley Hall Hotel and Spa.

    Guests attending the event will be greeted with a drink’s reception and a three-course dinner with a fun money casino, entertainment, a silent and live auction and a disco all included.

    Tickets are now available for £80 per person, with tables of 12 available. Table sponsorship is available for £150, businesses will appear on advertising for the event and in the brochure on the night, along with your business name and contact details on the table.

    Gena’s aim is to double her fundraising at this year’s event, so the money raised can go towards a new piece of life saving equipment on the unit, above and beyond what the NHS funds.

    If you’d like to book tickets at the Old School Disco event, contact Chris on the information below. Or if you’d to support Splash of Pink, sponsor a table at the ball in September or could support with the Vegas theme please contact Gena on splashofpink@outlook.com.
