Reaseheath College students and staff are joining in the Crewe Queens Park celebrations.

The college is joining forces with Crewe and Nantwich Horticulture Society to present a local produce and activities show, including demonstrations.

It will be part of a day of events on Saturday September 10 to mark the re-opening of the park after a £6.5 million overhaul.

There will also be a procession involving children in fancy dress from 11 schools, led by the Crewe Sea Cadets Corp Band, starting at 2.30pm.

Other highlights at the free event include dance routines from groups and troupe dancers, falconry displays, a travelling theatre show, live bands, sporting activities like Nordic walking, a funfair, the Heritage Centre miniature steam train, fancy dress, vintage machinery, charity stalls and the Starquest 2011 talent show finale.

It will climax with a pyrotechnic show including fireworks, flame shapes, gas jets and special effects from 9pm.

Cllr Rod Menlove, Cabinet member with responsibility for environmental services, said: “It is often said that Queens Park is Crewe’s ‘Jewel in the Crown’ and this is justifiably so.

“It is only right that we celebrate the excellent restoration work that has been carried out there.”
