SUNDAY 27 MAY is going to be a big day in Whaley Bridge

For the love of Max: he has inspired the wedding fair

The charity wedding fair, organised by local hairdressers Jane Marchington and Megan Riley, has caught the imagination of Whaley Bridge.

The event will consist of a wedding/prom fair in the afternoon at Whaley Bridge bowling club, starting at 1pm  and running to 4pm.  Entry is FREE, but Jane and Megan request a donation. – all proceeds go to Manchester Royal Children’s Hospital.  The charity event was inspired by two year old Max Jones from Whaley Bridge, who has had ten operations at the hospital.

There will be about 30 stands, Inside the club and also in two marquees.  During the event there will be a bridal fashion show and demonstration of bridal hair and make-up by Jane and Megan from Sammie’s Hair & Beauty, Whaley Bridge. There will be a raffle for one prize of a BIG Bridal package. This will be drawn at 3.30p.m. Raffle tickets, £2.50 each, are now on sale at Sammie’s and Cavendish Bridal Hayfield.
