Marbury Merry Days’.

Reporter Jonathan White, Crewe

The 35th annual ‘Marbury Merry Days’ - http://www.marburymerrydays.co.uk -  two-day traditional country fair took place on Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th May 2014.

The fair is organised by St. Michael & All Angels Parochial Church Council and takes places every May in the field next to St. Michael's & All Angels Parish Church and Marbury Big Mere, located 3 miles from Wrenbury (near Nantwich) in Cheshire.

The Vikings - https://www.facebook.com/vikingsonline - re-enacted battle displays with axes and broadswords, rowed a longship on the Big Mere and setup a living history village.

Other attractions and events included a craft & gift fair, trade stands, vintage motor cycles, classic cars, vintage tractors, stalls and tombola, cake stall, refreshments, ice cream, children’s activity area, Pinxton Puppets show, model aircraft flying display, dog & terrier racing (Saturday), GLOs Dance & Cheer (Saturday), Newfoundland dogs water display (Saturday), Fun Dog Show (Sunday) and Whitchurch Dog Display Team (Sunday). Attractions inside St. Michael's & All Angels Parish Church included a spinning demonstration, organ music and floral decorations.

Despite some wet weather over the weekend hundreds of people attended and enjoyed the event.

All proceeds go towards the upkeep of the St. Michael's & All Angels Parish Church in Marbury.

Next years ‘Marbury Merry Days’ will take place on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th May 2015.
