Town Mayor’s Fundraising BBQ a Sizzling Success Despite the Rain!

Mayor of Knutsford Cllr Andrew Malloy hosted a fundraising BBQ on Friday night to raise money to support the Mayor’s fundraising and 2nd Knutsford Scouts. The Mayor’s fundraising this year is raising money for a Skate Park project in Knutsford and supporting local charitable community sports groups promoting youth activity.

Over 60 guests and families braved the rain for the BBQ kindly prepared and served by 2nd Knutsford Scouts.  All the meat, fruit and vegetables came from Edwards and Emmess Butchers and Jonty’s Fruit & Veg in Knutsford Market Hall.  The beer from Tatton Brewery went down well on the bar and the guests still drank Pimms despite the grey skies!

Cllr Andrew Malloy said: “I am delighted to have been able to raise over £540 at my first fundraising event. A big thank you to 2nd Knutsford Scouts who manned the BBQ with a team of fantastic volunteers (both young and old!).  Thank you also to the Deputy Mayor of Cheshire East and the Mayor of Crewe for attending and to my Deputy Cllr Stewart Gardiner for your help on the night.”

The Mayor’s next fundraising event is a Spanish night at Evuna, taking place on Tuesday 10th September. Tickets are £23 and available from Mayor’s PA Annabel Irvine (01565 653 929).

Front Garden Competition

Knutsford is already blooming with the RHS Tatton Flower Show in town, floral shop window displays plus an upcoming visit from the Northwest In Bloom Competition judges, and now Knutsford Town Council is inviting residents to get involved by nominating gardens for the 2019 Knutsford Front Garden Competition.

The competition, organised by the council in 2019, encourages residents to get involved with the In Bloom campaign and either show off their own beautiful front gardens or maybe nominate a neighbour.

The competition is open to any garden which is on view to members of the public, and anything can be nominated from window boxes to large landscaped gardens. Residents are encouraged to snap a photo of their favourite Knutsford front gardens and enter them into the competition by emailing the picture to the council. Residents can nominate their own gardens, a neighbour’s garden or a garden that they have passed on their travels.

The competition has once again been sponsored by Fryers Garden Centre on Manchester Road who will be providing prizes for the three winners. The competition will be judged by the Town Mayor with representatives from Knutsford in Bloom and Fryers.

“Whether you’re proud of your own garden or think your neighbour’s efforts have been paying off all you need to do is send us a picture to enter it – it’s a fun, local competition focused on recognising the spaces that brighten people’s days” said Town Clerk, Adam Keppel-Green.

The competition opened on Monday 15th July and will be open for one month until Friday 16th August. To enter just send a photograph and the address of the garden to alex.brown@knutsfordtowncouncil.gov.uk. You can enter as many gardens as you’d like, and can also submit entries in person to the Council Offices on Toft Road.
