HUNDREDS of visitors flocked to the inaugural Disley and Newtown Well Dressing at the weekend.

As well as the blessing of the well, which took place on Sunday, there was a packed programme for visitors to enjoy over the weekend including maypole dancing by children from Disley Primary School, Morris dancing, New Mills band and a scarecrow competition.

Ken Fogg, who helped organise the event, said: “For the service on Sunday there must have been about 250 people stood around the well singing hymns and in the village on Saturday night you couldn’t move during the barbecue.

“It has been excellent.”
