Ray & Chris Hulme provide Music and the PA, Mick the Chip provided food, Shelly the Ice Cream, Richard (Jack Frost) with his Bouncing Castle and St John's Methodist Chapel put on Tea, Coffee and Cakes. Chris Grimes played his guitar to entertain and the side stalls included Willaston History Group, the Community Opportunities Group and the Clean Team, also Cheshire East Recycling, British Legion, Guide Dogs, Cheshire Police, Children's Book Stall, Coconut Shy & Skittles and the 26th SWC Scouts staged a Camping Exhibition.

Also, there was a fine display of Racing and Sports Cars from Simon and Tom Chadwick (the local garage) together with Vintage and Classic Bikes and Cars. In the Arena there was a kids Fancy Dress, the best wagging dogs tail and a display from Willaston's own dance troop plus Crewe's Matrix Troup Dancers.

The procession started at 1.45pm from Moorfields Corner (The Village Green) with the New Rose Queen 2011, Ellie Mae Pointon travelling in a 1930's Ford Model AA with her five attendants, Bethan Goodwin, Olivia Lord, Gladys Llewellyn, Charlotte Caldwell and Ffion Owen. Going up Wistaston Road into Wybunbury Road and finally going onto the Letty Spencer Playing Fields they were met be met by last year's Rose Queen Emily Bennett and her attendants. Local Cheshire East Councillors Brian Silvester and Margaret Simon and Parish Councillor John Flackett opened the event and Mrs Judy Heywood crowned the new Rose Queen.

Cllr Brian Silvester said, "The village fete was revived last year by Mike Heywood and it was a great success. Everyone had a lovely time this year soaking up the village fete atmosphere and a lot of money was raised for local good causes.
I congratulate Parish Councillor John Flackett and his organising team on their great effort to put on such a popular and worthwhile event. I would also like to thank the Willaston Parish Council, Cheshire East Council and all the local groups involved, for the support they have given to make the Fete possible."
