The Lymm and District Round Table are fired up for their annual charity bonfire, which returns on Saturday November 7th.
This year’s event is once again sponsored by Kids Planet Day Nursery on Eagle Brow and held at Lymm Rugby Club on Crouchley Lane. It will feature a children’s fireworks display at 7pm and a main fireworks display at 7:45pm. The doors will open at 6pm with the bonfire lighting at 6:30pm.
“We raised a record amount for charity last year – a massive £13.5k – so there’s certainly lots to live up to!” said Gary Parsons, organiser and Round Table member. “The earlier bonfire lighting went down well last year so we’ve stuck to the same format this time around, plus there’ll be the customary rides and food stalls.”
Tickets will be on sale by The Cross, Lymm, on the Saturday mornings preceding bonfire night. Advanced ticket prices are £12 for a family (up to two adults and two children), £6 for adults and £3 for children, while on the door charges are £15 for family, £7 adult and £3 child.

Some of you may have been involved with Lymm Big Sing over the past couple of years, over 100 people have sing with us, so it is great to see a new group for your youngsters with a similar "no audition, sing for fun but do it right" philosophy starting up in the village this month. It would be great to have the two groups performing together at next Summer's Lymm Festival.
Created especially for 5-11 year olds, Little Belters is a group for children who simply love to sing and a new group is launching in Lymm on Thursday 24th September.
Set up in 2012 by professional singers and sisters, Claire and Tina O’Brien, Little Belters currently has two thriving ensembles in Altrincham and Chorlton, where new members are welcomed throughout the year. Key to their success is a strict no-audition policy, all children are welcome whatever their ability.
The group in Lymm will rehearse every Thursday in term time from 4.45pm-5.45pm at the Youth and Community Centre on Bridgewater Street and they are RECRUITING MEMBERS NOW!
Little Belters’ members learn proper singing technique in a fun, fast-paced environment. There are lots of opportunities to perform whether it’s at prestigious venues like Manchester Cathedral, at local community events, on TV or in the recording studio.
Unlike a traditional choir, Little Belters run rehearsals like high energy, group singing lessons. They use all kinds of games, techniques and repertoire to develop children’s voices. The group approach is a cost-effective alternative to individual vocal tuition, and is particularly effective during primary years. It also means even the most timid child can participate as they are working as part of a team - this gives them time and space to develop confidence. As each Little Belter grows more relaxed and their vocal ability improves there are opportunities for solos, duets, trios and small group performances.
Claire says “We’re contacted all the time by parents who say their children never stop singing. At home, in the car, everywhere! These kids LOVE music….particularly pop music and we work with that rather than frowning upon it. We believe that learning to sing should be a joyful experience that leaves children feeling uplifted and happy. Children have to deal with a lot of stress, pressure and competition these days and singing provides a release from all that.”
If you know a child that simply loves singing, book them in for a free taster session, no audition necessary. Contact Tina on 07740 464507 or Claire on 07779 668204 email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.littlebelters.co.uk to see Little Belters in action.

Can’t believe it's February already and only just getting around to posting this brilliant video (made by Colin Grimes) of Dickensian Day. Hats off to the team who put this together and especially choosing to hold it on almost the only dry day of the month.
The video also features the great sound of Lymm’s very own Big Sing choir. Work is already underway on preparing the music for their next performance with none other than Beverley Craven. It is a huge thrill for us to have been able to tempt a BRIT award winning superstar to appear at our village festival. Mark June 23rd in your diary now.
Talking of great events Beverley Craven will be followed just a few days later by the third Historic Transport Day on Sunday June 28th. If last year’s show was anything to go by it is going to be an amazing day but one where we really need the community as whole to get involved. It takes over 150 part time volunteers on the day to make sure everything runs smoothly. Last year some people chose not to volunteer as they didn’t want to miss any of the show. So this year here’s the deal. Give us just 3 hours of your time sometime between 8am and 7pm on Sunday June 28th and we will have a free entry wristband for you and your partner or friend and your kids if you have any ! And all our volunteers will get refreshment vouchers, and we’ll invite you to the thank you party. Please put your name down now so we can start to plan another great village day.

Lymm and District Round Table’s annual bonfire smashed its previous fundraising record after amassing a staggering £13,500 for charity.
This dwarfs last year’s record total of £7,500 and represents the most successful event in the Table’s 50-year history.
The popular event – sponsored by Kids Planet Nursery and held at Lymm Rugby Club – wowed the crowd with two fireworks displays, a range of food, refreshments and fairground rides. Lymm Ladies Circle, who served up some warming beverages, also raised over £700 for charity.
Bonfire organiser and Round Table member Rob Spurr said: “We are absolutely over the moon at the amount we have raised this year. We knew it was a busy night but never dreamed that we’d better last year by so much.
“A big thank you must go to everyone who came along, our main sponsors Kids Planet, the rugby club for hosting us and the traders who also provide a welcome contribution to the kitty.”
This year’s chairman, Chris Gorman, added: “To raise such a huge total in what is our 50th year is absolutely amazing. We have a great group of hard-working lads who have given up their free time to help out. Their commitment to the cause means a lot of charities and community groups will be getting a much-needed boost this Christmas.”
