Hardy villagers held an activity day in Nantwich by switching venues to avoid the torrential rain.
Scores of families and youngsters attended the Stapeley Playground activity day which was moved inside to the new community hall.
Children were able to enjoy face painting, henna tattooing and T-shirt designing as well as circus skills and willow art.
The event was arranged by Stapeley Parish Action Group (SPAG) and funded by a sustainability grant from Community Spaces.
SPAG was formed to develop the Parish Plan and one of its major achievements is the building of the Stapeley Play area.
Now the group is appealing for new members to join the group and help plan improvements to the area.
It has working parties for transport, environment, public services and communications.
The next SPAG meeting is at Brine Leas School at 7pm on June 10. For details contact Bob Walker on firstname.lastname@example.org
There is also a new Stapeley Litter Group (SLG) which is working with Cheshire East Council’s Streetscape department to reduce litter.
Litter picks are advertised on the notice board at the Co-op. For more information please contact email@example.com
The next one-hour litter pick will be on Thursday May 23, meeting at Stapeley Community Hall car park at 7pm.
