Hankelow Village Fete helped to raise hundreds of pounds for local causes, writes Jonathan White.

The event took place on Hankelow village green yesterday (June 19).

There were numerous stalls such as coconut shy, splat the rat, football challenge, bowls, a plant sale, a clothes sale, bric-à-brac and a Summer Prize Draw.

Several charities were represented including Bloodwise South Cheshire, St Luke’s (Cheshire) Hospice, Hope House Children’s Hospice, NSPCC and the Audlem Charity Shop.

There were sports activities for children including sprint and skipping races.

The arena hosted a Fun Dog Show, U3A Scottish Dancers, and a demonstration featuring birds of prey from Vale Royal Falconry.

There was music from Music land (Market Drayton) and the Crewe Concert Band.

Cheshire Fire and Rescue from Audlem Fire Station displayed a full size fire appliance.
