Lymm Rushbearing 2016 was cancelled due to traffic management
issues (despite training by organisers) and lack of Council funding even though other Lymm events
are proceeding as
normal without issue.
The Lymm Morris decided to dance as normal in Lymm that day (including their pre-rushbearing dance spots)
Some interested Lymm residents also turned out to walk the rushbearing "route"
This is a picture intensive account of the day.
The canal is behind the crowd (honest)
Musicians (L-R): Peter, Pierre, Alex and Del
Ready to go
Mid dancing the "Double Cast"
Visitor enjoying the unusual event
Selective team with special guest
Instant traffic management problems - a car wants access to the car park
The roads are so busy - would be ironical if hit by only car on the road as it is musician Pierre driving to the next spot
The team make a brisk pace
"Procession" just about keeping up
The only real traffic problem... ...crossing the A56
Standing (L-R): Alex, Tony, Rick, Henry, Ian, Peter, Rob, Steve
Kneeling (L-R): Del, Geoff, Andrew, David
Annual performance at the Church Green pub
Yup, the musicians were there, too
(For L-R names see musician photo above)
"Can I take a selfie" said the lady in blue - turned into a team photo and not a selfie
Leaving the Church and Church Green
Nice wide set on the way back
Team photo after the event at the Lymm Cross
A similar view to 1840 - perhaps next year we'll take it from further left... ...see below
