Little Bollington W.I.

Mr Alan Williams gave a fascinating talk about Lymm Vintage Transport Day. He explained how he had the vision and imagination to start this event in 2013, initially to raise funds for the Lymm Festival. From small beginnings, a highly successful and popular event has developed, with over one hundred volunteers contributing their time. Now a huge variety of historic vehicles are represented such as vintage buses, steam engines, classic cars, historic canal boats, and last year, even a spitfire flyover.   Over one  thousand children have benefited from the education programme run from a canal boat from the boat museum which takes place in the week leading up this annual event, where they can dress up  and learn about boats and the canal. Mr Williams is rightly proud of the way this has become a lovely family day out. He has also been involved in the creation of Lymm Heritage Centre.

 

The Book Club are reading " The Good Italian" by Stephen Burke and the Art and Craft group continue to meet. A walk will take place in March.

 

The Speakers in March are Pat Burrows and Jacqui Billsborough who will talk about "The perils and pleasures of being a Wardrobe mistress"
