Lymm Information & Heritage Centre - Please tell us what you think of the idea
Whenever we travel around the country we are always struck by how much effort even small villages make to welcome visitors and to share their history. Yes we have a heritage trail, but we have no Visitor/Tourist Information Point and no central location where people can learn about Lymm's fascinating and varied history - especially at weekends when we get so many visitors. If we are really keen on increasing footfall in the village and celebrating and sharing the story of Lymm then a joint Information and Heritage Centre seems like a great idea. We already have a small team in place ready to kick the project off - all volunteers - ( though we would like more) but before we launch into a huge effort we need the views of local people. A positive response will encourage us to pursue the idea and will also provide valuable evidence when applying for financial support. If you think its a waste of time tell us now and if that's the prevailing view we'll find something else to do!
Please take just two minutes to complete the survey on the Lymm Heritage Centre website and forward this email to others who may be interested.
You will see a contact us page there too if you would like to know more.

The Lymm and District Round Table’s charity bonfire returns to light up the night sky and entertain the crowds on Saturday November 8th.
This year’s event is once again sponsored by Kids Planet Nursery on Eagle Brow and held at Lymm Rugby Club on Crouchley Lane. It will feature slightly different timings than previous years with doors opening at 6pm, closely followed by bonfire lighting at 6.30pm, a children’s fireworks display at 7.00pm and main fireworks display at 7.45pm.
“We must say a big thank you to Kids Planet for sponsoring us again, they’re always keen to support our community events and it’s great that their children will be making the Guy this year too,” said Rob Spurr, organiser and Round Table member. “We’ve brought forward the bonfire lighting this year in the hope that we can keep people warm if it’s cold, plus there’ll be the popular funfair rides and lots of food and drink on offer.
“Hopefully the public will turn out once more and ensure we have plenty of money to donate to charity in time for Christmas.”
Tickets will be on sale by The Cross, Lymm, on the three weekends preceding bonfire night. Advanced ticket prices are £10 for a family (up to two adults and two children), £5 for adults and £2 for children, while on the door charges are £12 for family, £6 adult and £3 child.

Charity money has come pouring in following Lymm and District Round Table’s fourth annual beer festival after another great turnout from the ale-loving public.
Over £5,000 was raised in total, a record for the event, as hundreds attended the two-day festival sponsored by Warrington-based Urban Building Projects Ltd, specialists in domestic and commercial building. The 37 cask ales, ciders and perries on offer at Lymm Village Hall, along with hearty grub served up by Lymm Ladies Circle - who also raised over £450 for good causes – ensured the public went away well fed and watered.
James Williams, who helped to organise the festival, said: “We had more ales and ciders on offer than ever before which proved to be a good move as at the end of Saturday night the stocks were running low, but we still had a few beers available. I’d like to thank everyone who contributed to the event, especially our main sponsors, Urban, our cask sponsors, those who sampled the ales, pulled the pints, entertained the crowd or provided the food.
“They all helped to ensure we raised as much money as we did – we now need to focus on making some donations and planning next year’s event…not before our Big Lymm Bonfire that is!”
