Summer Celebration - what a weekend!

Updated: 3 days ago

Holmes Chapel certainly knows how to party and celebrate this fantastic community! What an incredible Summer Celebration weekend we've just had. There were so many amazing events and what made it so special is there was something for everyone!

Firstly, Holmes Chapel Parish Council wants to say a huge thank you to all those who organised events: Everybody Health & Leisure, Holmes Chapel Chorus, the Village Fair organisers and all those who supported us for the Friday night Street Party! So much time, hard work, thought and energy went into these events - thank you!

Friday Night Street Party!

The rain held off and hundreds of our residents descended into the village centre at 6pm for a fantastic night of food, refreshment, music, dance and magic. It was great to close London Road and allow attendees the freedom to safely enjoy a fantastic night out.

The delicious aromas from our various local businesses made it difficult to choose where to go and eat - it all looked and smelt amazing! The music from Dane Sound Radio and the Heritage Jazz Band left us partying into the evening!

Cllr Diane Tams, Vice-Chair of the Parish Council says, "It was wonderful to see so many of our residents spending time with one another in our amazing village centre. The Summer Celebration is about community and coming together to celebrate what a fantastic place Holmes Chapel is to live. To see the joy and happiness on the faces of our residents and to see our local businesses thriving was a real privilege. A huge thank you to all those who made this event happen; from those who gave up their time to volunteer as stewards to our musicians and local business - we couldn't do it without you!"

Saturday saw two fantastic events take place which centred around music and fun!

Everybody Health & Leisure Family Fun Day

Holmes Chapel Community Centre was buzzing with fun and the sun shone (eventually)! The Everybody staff had worked so hard to put on a fantastic afternoon/evening of music and family activities and all for free!

There was dancing, face painting, sports and games, bouncy castle, balloons, magic, Meatloaf tribute act and other musical acts, great food and England even won the football (which was shown during the event)!

Jade Stone, manager of the Community Centre says: 'Holmes Chapel Community Centre was so excited to host a Summer Celebration, drawing an unprecedented crowd of over 600 people. I was overwhelmed by the turnout and extended a warm thank you to all who participated and supported the event.

Featuring lively performances and a variety of children's activities, the celebration was a hit with the community. We couldn't have put on such an amazing event without the local support, highlighting the crucial role the community played in the event's success.

The team are grateful to everyone who joined the festivities, helping to make this Summer Celebration a tremendous success!"

The Parish Council Clerk's children certainly enjoyed the event as can be seen as they model just some of the fantastic activities that were on offer!

Holmes Chapel Chorus Concert

Saturday evening, Holmes Chapel Leisure Centre hosted a spectacular concert by the Holmes Chapel Chorus. A concert with a difference, attendees were encouraged to bring a picnic to have at the interval. The theme of the concert was 'For the Love of Music' and it was truly a special night. A raffle for St Luke's Hospice raised £450 which was fantastic.

A huge thanks to the Chorus for putting on such a great night of music.

Sunday - Village Fair

The annual Village Fair held at the Victoria Club has always been a great event for Holmes Chapel, bringing people together. The rain did not stop play! There were lots of stalls, activities, classic cars, a dog show, circus skills and music. So many people came down to look around and a fantastic time was had by all.

The Parish Council always enjoys meeting our residents face to face and finding out what matters most to you. Our stall highlighted some of our recent work, including SID data and gathering views regarding EV charging for our Village.

The Youth Council again organised a spectacular art exhibition using art work from local schools - Byley Primary, Goostrey Primary, Holmes Chapel Primary, the Hermitage and Holmes Chapel Comprehensive School. It was fantastic to see the artistic talent of our local children and young people.

A huge thanks to the organisers of the Village Fair for rounding of Summer Celebration 2024 with a fantastic fair!
