It was certainly a busy weekend for Cheadle MP Mark Hunter as the local community festival season well and truly burst into life over the last few days.

Friday saw the MP attend a special 'Festival of flowers' celebration organised by St Mary's Church on the High Street in Cheadle to mark the 400th anniversary of the English translation of the King James Bible. Mark, who had been invited by the Rev Rob Munro, popped in on Friday afternoon and was most impressed by the fantastic floral arrangements and a spectacular installation by pupils from Cheadle Primary School and Lady Barn House School.

Saturday morning saw the official opening of the Bramhall Festival and special carnival parade and on Saturday afternoon Mark joined the crowds at the annual Heald Green Festival held on the field behind the Village Hall on Outwood Road. All these events were well supported by local community organisations, business and residents.

Commenting afterwards, Mark said:

"I'd like to congratulate everyone involved in helping to make these events as successful as they were. Plenty of people put a lot of time and effort into helping out and they are the unsung heroes of our community.

"Whilst all there who attended would have had a great time, we should be thankful to those who made it possible. Community events, like these, are a fine example of what makes our area such a great place to live and work and I am always happy to support such great local initiatives. Well done to all those who made these events possible."
