   'Party on the Carrs'    June 20, 2013

The event enjoyed fine weather and large numbers made their way to the Carrs, threw down a picnic blanket and enjoyed the entertainment.

The Town Council organised and funded the event and was delighted to be able to join forces with Alderley District Scout Band on the occasion of their 50th Anniversary, the live entertainment switched throughout the day from stage to parade ring and back again.

The crowd was treated to wonderful community performances from Styal Brass, Move and Groove and the Alderley & Wilmslow Musical Theatre Company who got the event off to a great start whilst the community stalls and local food stalls enjoyed brisk trade.  Alderley District Scout band and visiting scout bands from Rhyl and Davyhulme performed in the parade ring.

Children enjoyed playing on the bouncy castles, the Girl-Guiding games, face painting and visiting the many stalls whilst the adults sat in the sun and were entertained by solo performances on the main stage by Heather Dee and Alan Burton and also from four-piece band ‘Slinky’, who kept the party moving at a pace.

The event came to a fitting finale as past and present members of Alderley District Scout Band assembled and performed together to the enjoyment of all.

Chairman of Wilmslow Town Council, Cllr Keith Purdom  said “The Party on the Carrs was another really successful event, great entertainment, great weather and most pleasingly a great turnout. The Town Council have now organised and funded this event for the last two years and I am delighted that the time, effort and funding has once again produced an event that many Wilmslow residents have enjoyed attending. The event brought together a number of different local groups and I would like to thank them, all of the volunteers on the day and my Council colleagues for helping make this event happen”

The ‘Party on the Carrs’ held on Sunday  17th June 2013 was a highly successful event following on from the inaugural event last year which celebrated the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
