Delamere Forest Sponsored Run for the Stoke Association
On a fine morning in March we went off to Delamere Forest to show the runners the way along the route around the lake. The next time we went we weren’t so lucky with the weather, there was a covering of snow through the forest paths. Good job we all had plenty of layers on to keep us warm.
Fun Day at Congleton Football Club
This was a really easy event to attend; our main duty was to ensure that the road leading up to the football ground did not get congested and to advise people attending the event where they could park their vehicles. Of course once the event was well underway and we not needed to control the traffic, we had a good look around the stalls, sampled some lovely cakes and even got to watch a stunning performance by Elvis!! (Not the real one of course.)
It’s a Knockout in Congleton Park
Another fun event was enjoyed by the crowds in Congleton Park. Our Marshals used their skills to show the public the way to the car park. We then went to watch as the fun started in the competition.
It's a knockout at Macclesfield Rugby Club
Wrapped up warm and braving the wind at Macclesfield Rugby Club, we manned the car park for the teams and supporters arriving to take part in the competition. Once the fun was underway we went to watch and cheer them on. This was the second event we have done for Crossroads Care.
Jazz and Blues Festival
At the start of the Jazz and Blues Festival there is usually an ‘Umbrella Parade’. Our marshals have assisted in closing the road for the short procession.
Jubilee Celebrations in Congleton Park
It was a day full of exciting things to do. With lots of families expected to join in the fun. Our marshals were in charge of car parking and directing people to the event.
Just So Festival
We were asked to step in one year when the organisers found they were short of volunteers. To our delight we were able to help. At the start of the weekend we helped out in the car park showing the campers to where to go after unloading their cars. Later on we were asked to help checking wristbands of all people going through the main gate. Another day we were actually putting on the wristbands at the reception tent. It was a lovely family event enjoyed by small children and the adult’s also.
Mercian Parade in Sandbach
We were asked to help out with managing traffic and people for the Mercian Parade in Sandbach. Cheshire Marshals were there as history was being made. It was a sight to see as more than 100 soldiers marched through the town to the War Memorial where they received the Freedom of the Town.
Much Wenlock to Congleton Relay
To start the celebrations for the Olympic year, we helped with the last leg of the relay. We had several marshals along the route from Astbury Mere to the Town Centre, making sure that the runners had safe places to cross the roads. When the runners had passed through we all congregated by the Christmas tree to hear a message that had travelled 60 miles.
