LYMM Festival has had the whole village buzzing since it launched last week with the spectacular Food Fest.
Last Thursday, the sun and the scarecrows appeared around the village to set the scene from another brilliant Food Fest which helps launch the event each year.
This year’s explorer scarecrows look great, so buy a guide from the box office to find them all.
Lymm library offered a range of activities for kids on the Saturday, including a lovely rhyme time, a hunt around the library (with a code to crack!) and making some very tasty mocktails. There was also a range of sports and yoga for the kids to sample and hand massages for the adults to relax a little. The Library garden also hosted the first Lymm Festival Rock Drop by Lymm Rocks. A total of 149 beautiful rocks inspired by the Festival or exploration were contributed and later hidden around the village, so keep an eye out this week as there are lots of rocks to be found.
Saturday was also the ideal day to open the new permanent orienteering course at Spud Wood. With a steady flow of 150 people over the afternoon, the new course had a great opening day.
Statham Lodge Hotel was packed to hear Sir Ranulph talk about his life of living dangerously on Monday evening. With some amazing photos, he spared no detail when talking about the conditions he endured, but also provided lots of laughs along the way too. It was a fascinating talk with some great questions answered after the break, including tips on what’s left for the youth of today to conquer! Book signings were in demand at the end.
There is still more to come this week with the ever-popular Family Garden Party in Lymm Hall on Saturday. Don’t miss out on your tickets!
