THE Wild West came to Cheshire at the weekend, as a crowd of more than 2,000 turned out for the annual Bunbury Village Day.
Brownies and army cadets joined youngsters from Bunbury Aldersey CE Primary and Early Birds Pre-School in a fancy dress parade through the village. Staff from The Salon on Bunbury Lane also joined in the fun, dressing in cowboy-themed outfits.Š
Visitors were spoilt for choice, with 45 stalls selling a range of locally-sourced food, crafts and beauty treatments. Independent brewery JW Lees kept the bar well stocked, while RF Burrows and Son butchers provided meat for the barbecue.
Children were treated to fairground rides, a football competition, a miniature steam train and a one-off chance to explore the back of a police van. More adventurous attendees tackled a tug of war, climbing wall and bucking bronco.
Organiser Jonathan Turner said: “It was a great day. What’s really good about it is that all the profits on the day get given back to the village.”
The Village Day committee is on the look out for volunteers to help organise next year's event. Anyone wishing to join the committee or to help in any way should emailŠvillage.firstname.lastname@example.org.
